    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and the head of the Ukrainian Presidential Office on Monday discussed the steps the Biden administration aims to undertake to revitalize the bilateral strategic partnership in support of President Volodymyr Zelensky's policies.

    "He [Sullivan] relayed the Biden administration’s commitment to revitalize our strategic partnership in support of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s plan to tackle corruption and implement a reform agenda that delivers justice, security and prosperity to the people of Ukraine," White House spokesperson Emily Horne said in a statement on Monday.

    Sullivan also told Yermak that the United States will continue supporting Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and Euro-Atlantic aspirations, the statement said.

    Last week, President Zelensky approved a new military security strategy for Ukraine that sets a goal for the country to become a member of NATO as well as to end the temporary "occupation" of a part of Ukrainian territory by Russia.

    Moscow has rejected the accusation that it occupies any territory and has repeatedly said the residents of Crimea decided to rejoin Russia via a referendum organized in accordance with international law and standards.
