The Head of State met with the President of Argentina

In the framework of the Global Peace Summit in Switzerland, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with President of Argentina Javier Milei.

The Ukrainian leader thanked Javier Milei for attending the Peace Summit and noted the broad representation of Latin American countries.

"I am very pleased to see you here. I know that your journey to the Summit was long. But I am confident that history will remember this long path to peace. I am grateful to you," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

The Presidents discussed the next steps in implementing the specific points of the Peace Formula.

"We support Ukraine. We believe that nobody has the right to attack another country. Now we have only one aggressor – it is Russia, and a state that has been invaded – it is Ukraine. We strongly support Ukraine, as we emphasized in our speech (Ed. note: at the Peace Summit)," Javier Milei said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy also thanked Argentina for recently joining the International Coalition for the Return of Ukrainian Children.

The leaders discussed bilateral cooperation, including trade, and progress in implementing previous agreements; they emphasized the need to continue international contacts at various levels.

The Heads of State also noted the importance of the visit of the Ukrainian government delegation led by First Deputy Prime Minister Yuliia Svyrydenko in May.
