Kyiv/BERLIN (Reuters) – Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba said that “more weapons and other aid are on their way to Ukraine” as he met U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in Berlin on Sunday.

Kuleba will brief a NATO foreign ministers meeting in Berlin on Sunday on the situation on the ground in Ukraine and how the alliance can further help the country as it battles invading Russian forces in its 12th week.

“We agree to work closely to ensure Ukrainian food exports reach consumers in Africa and Asia. Thank you Secretary Blinken and the United States for their leadership and unwavering support,” Kuleba tweeted.

State Department spokesman Ned Price said the two discussed the impact of Russia’s February 24 invasion of Ukraine, including the impact on global food security.

“Secretary of State conveyed details about the latest tranche of U.S. security assistance to strengthen Ukraine’s defenses,” Price said.
