The two leaders will also discuss the situation on the frontline, Ukraine's military, economic and humanitarian needs, and negotiations on the country's efforts to join the European Union, which France fully supports, the presidential palace Elysee said in a statement.

No details on the scope of the agreement were disclosed. But it is expected that issues such as the supply of military equipment, the training of the Ukrainian army or the strengthening of the defense industry will be on the agenda. 

"This agreement is a continuation of the commitments made by the G7 countries at the NATO summit in Vilnius in July 2023," Elysee said.

At the summit, the G7 countries committed to provide "long-term" military support to Ukraine to help it fight Russian aggression and deter Moscow. 

President Emmanuel Macron said earlier this year that France was negotiating a bilateral agreement modeled on the 10-year deal Ukraine recently signed with the United Kingdom.

The UK was the first country to sign a security agreement with Ukraine during Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's visit to Kiev on January 12. 

The Ukrainian President's second stop after France will be Germany. Zelensky will meet with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Friday.
