Macron and Zelensky will sign a bilateral security agreement in Paris

French President Emmanuel Macron and Volodymyr Zelensky are set to sign a security agreement between the two countries at the Elysee Palace.

“This agreement is a consequence of the commitments made in the G7 format on the margins of the NATO summit in Vilnius in July 2023,” the Elysee Palace recalled.

Zelensky will arrive in Germany and France on Friday, 16 February, to hold meetings with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Macron.

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Ankara was maintaining contacts with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Volodymyr Zelensky in order to peacefully resolve the situation in Ukraine.

The Turkish leader indicated his intention to make a new attempt to open the door to peace by managing processes that are result-oriented and free from outside influence.
