Sullivan: Biden and Zelensky are continuing to discuss the possibility of supplying ATACMS missiles to Kiev
The US President’s National Security Adviser, Jake Sullivan, stated that Joe Biden continues to discuss the provision of ATACMS missiles to Kiev with his Ukrainian counterpart, Vladimir Zelensky.
“Ultimately whether or not to turn over ATACMS is the president’s decision, and he’s talked about that with President Zelensky,” Sullivan said during the Aspen Security Forum on Friday.
He emphasized: “They are continuing this conversation. I do not want to disappoint you, but I have nothing to announce today” in this regard.
The Pentagon’s deputy spokesman, Sabrina Singh, had said earlier that the issue of supplying Ukraine with ATACMS missiles, which have a range of about 300 km, is still on the table, but Washington considers that the Ukrainian forces have everything they need on the battlefield.
And the Pentagon confirmed in late June that no decision had been taken yet on providing these missiles to Ukraine.
