The former US Secretary of State is now one of Ukraine's lobbyists in NATO.
During his visit to the United States, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky met with former US Secretary of State and renowned geopolitical scholar Henry Kissinger.
Andriy Yermak, head of the president's office, who was also present, shared details of the meeting on social networks.
"It turned out to be a really profound conversation," Yermak said.
He added that Kissinger was now one of Ukraine's lobbyists in NATO.
In the first months of the full-scale invasion, Kissinger said that Ukraine should make territorial concessions. He was also known as an opponent of Ukrainian membership of NATO.
But in January 2023, the former diplomat changed his position and said that after the start of the full-scale Russian invasion, Ukraine's membership in the Alliance would be appropriate.
"Before this war, I was against Ukraine's membership in NATO because I was afraid that it would start the process that we are witnessing now. Now that the process has reached this level, the idea of a neutral Ukraine under these circumstances no longer makes sense," Kissinger said.
