During a working visit to Georgia, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a meeting with President of the Republic of Moldova Maia Sandu.
The President congratulated Maia Sandu on the victory of the pro-European democratic forces in the parliamentary elections in Moldova and wished his Moldovan counterpart success in forming an efficient government.
The parties discussed priority steps to intensify trade and economic cooperation, setting the cooperation in the field of energy and the implementation of joint infrastructure projects as key areas of economic interaction between the two countries.
"Successful implementation of such bilateral and multilateral projects should become an important step towards strengthening the diversification and energy independence of both countries," said the President of Ukraine.
Particular attention was also paid to the development of transport and transit potential of Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova. The parties agreed on the need to accelerate the implementation of the flagship project in this area - the construction of a border bridge over the Dniester River near the settlements of Yampil and Cosăuți.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy informed Maia Sandu about the main tasks and modalities of the Crimean Platform, reaffirming his invitation to his Moldovan counterpart to take part in the founding summit of this international initiative, as well as in ceremonial events marking the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence.
