Romanian Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu participates on Wednesday in the first joint meeting of the Romanian and Ukrainian governments, which is taking place in Kyiv.
According to a Bucharest spokesperson, the meeting is also attended by cabinet members and experts in the fields of defense, agriculture, transport, energy, interior and health.
“The visit to Kyiv has two clear objectives – to promote the rights of Romanians in Ukraine and to sign important bilateral agreements that lay the foundation for more applied cooperation in several sectors. Ukraine can count on Romania now and in the long term because we have an opportunity to become a center of logistical support for the reconstruction of this country,” Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu stressed, according to an official press release from Bucharest.
The Romanian chief executive will hold meetings with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmygal, with whom he will make joint statements to the press, as well as with Verkhovna Rada Speaker Ruslan Stefanchuk.
