President of Ukraine holds talks with President of Moldova

As part of his working visit to Greece and participation in the Ukraine-Balkans summit, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy held talks with President of the Republic of Moldova Maia Sandu.

The heads of state touched upon the pressing issues of bilateral cooperation, regional security, joint opposition to the Kremlin's aggressive policy and Russian hybrid influence.

The parties discussed cooperation between the two countries in creating alternative routes for exporting Ukrainian grain after Russia blocked the Black Sea Grain Initiative.

The presidents also focused on the important issue of the integration of Ukraine and Moldova into the European Union and common challenges along the path.

Zelenskyy and Sandu noted the active development of the political dialogue between the countries and discussed further contacts, in particular Moldova's participation in the third international Crimea Platform summit in Kyiv on August 23.
