Ukraine and Moldova remain not only neighbors, but also immutable and reliable partners. It was stated by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy during a press conference with Prime Minister of Moldova Maia Sandu on July 11 in Kyiv.
The Head of State emphasized that the visit to Ukraine was one of the first foreign visits of the Prime Minister of Moldova.
“This means that our countries are not just neighbors, but also immutable partners,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy stressed.
According to the President, the government and parliament of Moldova have always supported the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. He expressed hope that the newly appointed government of Moldova would continue to do so.
The President noted that Ukraine would continue to provide full support to the territorial integrity of Moldova and actively participate in the negotiation process on the Transnistrian settlement.
"Ukraine and Moldova have a common desire - there should be no Russian troops in our territories. Also, we will not allow anyone to impose plans for the so-called federalization on us. As for the protection of the sovereignty of our states and security in the region, our positions are common,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted.
In turn, Maia Sandu assured that Moldova fully supported Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
"I feel love and respect for Ukrainians who sacrificed their lives to defend their country, its sovereignty and future as a European state," she said.
