Northern Europe and the US will provide economic and legal assistance to Ukraine.

The Nordic countries and the United States will continue to support Ukraine, including through security, economic, legal and humanitarian assistance, according to a resolution following the summit of the Nordic countries and the United States.

The resolution again condemns the special operation of the Russian Federation. It is reported that the Nordic countries and the United States “remained steadfast in their support for the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.”

 

“They promised to continue to support Ukraine for as long as necessary, including through security, economic, legal and humanitarian assistance,” the Office of the President of Finland said in a statement.

 

The leaders pledged to continue their diplomatic work to garner the broadest possible international support for a just and lasting peace in Ukraine based on the principles of the UN Charter.

The leaders of the United States and the Nordic countries also welcomed the announcement by Sweden, Turkey and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on July 10 that they hope Sweden will join NATO soon, the report said.

 


Leaders stressed that climate change and biodiversity loss are among the most serious challenges facing our planet.

“In this context, the leaders noted the importance of protecting and conserving the Arctic and promoting its sustainable economic development, working in consultation with the indigenous peoples of the Arctic … the leaders discussed ways to intensify cooperation on clean technologies, efficient use of resources and energy, energy security, critical minerals and sustainable supply chains,” the   statement said.

On Thursday, Helsinki hosted the third summit of the Nordic countries and the United States with the participation of President Joe Biden. The previous summits were held in Stockholm in 2013 and in Washington in 2016.
