"Greece has joined the G7 declaration on security guarantees for Ukraine. We will continue this work at the bilateral level to make the security assurances format a model for other states that need effective security guarantees. The world will definitely become more stable as a result of such joint security work," he said.
In addition, Zelenskyy reminded that Ukraine plans to start negotiations on EU membership this year and called today's step by Greece a necessary signal.
"This is a much-needed signal that Greece wants peace, just as we all in Ukraine want a just peace," the Ukrainian leader added.
By the way, Zelenskyy said in Greece that our country has created an alternative "grain corridor" in the Black Sea for the food security of the whole world. However, according to the guarantor, it needs air defence protection.
