U.S Secretary of State Antony Blinken will travel to New York City tomorrow to attend the United Nations Security Council ministerial meeting on Ukraine, APA reports citing CNBC.

Blinken will also meet with United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to discuss the broad range of economic, security and humanitarian support the United States and other U.N. member states are providing to Ukraine.

The two are also expected to “sustain and expand the Black Sea Grain Initiative as a vital means of addressing the global food security crisis,” State Department spokesman Ned Price wrote in a statement.

“During the Security Council meeting, the secretary will underscore U.S. commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and call upon the international community to endorse U.N. actions that will help secure a just and durable peace in Ukraine,” Price added.
