"The parties are set to summarize results of defense cooperation since the previous meeting of the joint working group and spell out areas and tasks of further collaboration between Ukraine and NATO," acting spokesman for the Ukrainian General Staff Vladyslav Seleznyov said at a press briefing on Wednesday.

The meeting will highlight the status and development areas of Ukraine's standardization and codification system, the prospective work of the trust fund supporting the disposal of light weapons, conventional munitions and anti-personnel mines and the trust fund for modernization of the communications system and troop control automation in the Ukrainian army, he said.

Aerial security will be another item on the agenda as part of the air defense data exchange program, alongside Ukraine's involvement in multinational Smart Defense projects and the fulfillment of the roadmap of military-technological cooperation with NATO.

The NATO delegation will pay visits to Concern Ukroboronprom State and state-owned company Antonov.
