British Foreign Secretary David Cameron began negotiations on a 100-year partnership between Britain and Ukraine during his visit to Kyiv, the British Embassy in Ukraine reported on Facebook.

This new agreement will solidify strong ties between Britain and Ukraine across the spectrum of relations: from trade, security and defense, to science & technology, education, and culture, the embassy noted.

Cameron also confirmed over $36 million in aid to Ukraine to help rebuild its energy infrastructure.

This consists of $20 million in emergency funding for recovery after Russia's recent wave of attacks on Ukraine's critical infrastructure, as well as $16 million for the winners of the Innovate Ukraine innovation projects competition.

Great Britain will build a new partnership with Ukraine, designed for 100 years or more, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said at the beginning of 2024.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Rishi Sunak signed a 10-year security agreement in Kyiv on January 12.
