BERLIN (Reuters) – German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has told Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that Germany is ready to act a security guarantor for Ukraine, said a German government spokesperson in Berlin.

Scholz signalled a “general willingness” about the role in a phone call with Zelenskiy, spokesperson Steffen Hebestreit told a regular news conference on Wednesday.

Hebestreit said he did not want to speculate about whether the security guarantor role would also include a military component.
