US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said during a phone conversation with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba that the USA will continue to help Kiev on the issue of territories, the website of the U.S. State Department reported.

The secretary reiterated President Biden's words that the United States will always respect Ukraine's internationally recognized borders and that the U.S. will continue to support Ukraine's efforts to regain control over its territory by strengthening its position militarily and diplomatically, the statement said.

During the phone conversation, the U.S. secretary of state also briefed the Ukrainian foreign minister on U.S. security assistance, including a $1.1 billion package of assistance from the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative announced this week, as well as future deliveries. 

Blinken and Kuleba also discussed the supply of Ukrainian grain and the security of Ukraine's nuclear facilities.

A ceremony was held on Friday in the St. George's Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace to sign treaties on the accession of four new territories to the Russian Federation.
