KYIV/BERLIN (Reuters) - Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said he met U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Berlin on Sunday and that "more weapons and other aid is on the way to Ukraine".

"We agreed to work closely together to ensure that Ukrainian food exports reach consumers in Africa and Asia. Grateful to Secretary Blinken and the U.S. for their leadership and unwavering support," Kuleba tweeted.

The two men discussed the impact of Russia's Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine, including on global food security, U.S. State Department Spokesperson Ned Price said.

"The Secretary conveyed details regarding the latest tranche of U.S. security assistance to bolster Ukraine’s defences," Price said.
