During his visit to the Republic of Moldova to participate in the Summit of the European Political Community, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy held talks with President of Romania Klaus Iohannis.
The Head of State thanked the entire Romanian people for their solidarity with Ukraine and expressed special gratitude to Klaus Iohannis for his personal contribution to the support of our country and strengthening its defense capabilities.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized the importance of Romania providing temporary shelter to Ukrainian citizens who were forced to flee their homes as a result of the aggressive war unleashed by Russia.
The leaders discussed further steps in Romania's assistance to Ukraine to counter the Russian invasion, including strengthening international sanctions policy and bringing Russia to justice for war crimes committed on the territory of our country.
The parties emphasized the importance of increasing support for Ukraine on its path to the EU and NATO. The signing by the heads of state of a declaration of support for Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic integration was evidence of this clear position on the part of Romania.
"The signing of this document is an important step on the eve of the July NATO Summit in Vilnius," Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.
Particular attention was paid to the implementation of the Peace Formula proposed by the President of Ukraine as a basis for ensuring a lasting and just peace on the continent and restoring world order.
During the meeting, the leaders exchanged views on topical issues of bilateral cooperation, in particular in the areas of trade and logistics, as well as cooperation in the humanitarian sphere.
