U.S. Secretary of State said at a press conference in Mexico

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said on Monday that the Ukrainian military has made “significant progress” in its counteroffensive.

“What they did was very methodically planned and, of course, was the result of significant support from the United States and many other countries in providing Ukraine with the necessary equipment for this counteroffensive,” Anthony Blinken said at a press conference in Mexico.

The secretary also said that Iran's response to the EU to revive the 2015 nuclear deal makes prospects for a return to an agreement anytime soon unlikely.
