Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will visit Paris on Wednesday evening for talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, the Elysée Palace said Wednesday, APA reports citing Politico.
Zelenskyy’s visit to Paris follows a trip to the U.K., during which he met British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, King Charles III and addressed the U.K. parliament. He is expected in Brussels on Thursday.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz will also attend the talks with Zelensky in Paris.
Discussions in Paris will focus on Ukraine’s long-term military plans and their weaponry needs, according to a French diplomat familiar with the preparations.
“Macron and Zelensky often speak on the phone so there are no new topics to discuss. But it’s different when you meet in person, you can talk about issues in more detail,” said the diplomat, who wanted to remain anonymous due to French protocol issues.
