Mike Johnson, Republican Speaker of the US House of Representatives, says he is confident an agreement can be reached before the recess on a new aid package for both Ukraine and Israel. This will require new measures regarding US border policy with Mexico, which Republicans want to tighten.

Negotiations have been ongoing for weeks on a linked aid package from President Joe Biden before Congress, which provides a total of $106 billion (about 97 billion euros) in long-term aid to both Ukraine and Israel. If this package is not approved quickly, US aid to Ukraine is at risk of drying up.

But Republicans, who hold the majority in the House of Representatives, do not want to simply agree to Biden’s proposal. Part of the Republican faction criticizes the aid provided to Ukraine. However, there still appears to be a broad majority of support across party lines. But given their dominant position, Republicans are pushing prices up.

“But I think it will be OK in the next few days,” Johnson said yesterday. “I am confident that we will be able to overcome this hurdle.” There is already a sense of urgency in Congress regarding both Israel and Ukraine. Aid to Israel is considered a “top priority,” according to Johnson, while aid to Ukraine is “also a priority.”

“We cannot allow Vladimir Putin to walk across Europe,” Johnson said during an event in Florida. “We understand the need for our help.” “But in order to provide additional aid to Ukraine, we must also work on the security of our borders,” he added.
