French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday he would head to Ukraine in February to finalise a bilateral security guarantee deal under which Paris would deliver more sophisticated weaponry, including long-range cruise missiles.
The trip comes at a time when political infighting in the U.S. and European Union has held up two major packages of assistance for Ukraine.
Macron said some 40 SCALP long-range missiles and several hundred bombs would be delivered in the coming weeks.
