Matthew Miller: "We Want Ukraine To Win This War"
The United States on Wednesday reaffirmed its clear commitment to ensuring Ukraine's victory over Russian aggression, TURAN's Washington correspondent reports.
"... We want Ukraine to win this war, and that’s why we think it’s so important that the United States Congress provide the security assistance that we have requested to Ukraine so it can win this war," State Department's spokesperson told a daily briefing when responding to TURAN's questions.
Miller's comments came amid increasing questions over Western unity and commitment both in the U.S. and in Europe due to budget disputes as well as Ukraine's path towards western institutions.
Hungary, for the moment, is preventing talks between the EU and Ukraine from starting.
When asked about Washington's position on this matter, Miller said both the U,S, and the EU have been resolute in standing with Ukraine. "We believe now is the time to step up that support. It’s vital to our national security and that of our European partners."
He went on to conclude, "We appreciate the EU’s continued efforts to provide financial support to Ukraine and hope that the EU can quickly agree on funding for 2024 and beyond."
