Ukraine restores relations with dozens of African countries. Ten states have already been identified where new Ukrainian embassies will be opened.
About that informed President Volodymyr Zelensky at the conference of Ukrainian ambassadors.
He stressed that Ukraine should pay special attention to regions and continents where our interests are even less represented than what we need for the good of the country and protection against Russian aggression.
“In particular, it is Africa. We are restoring relations with dozens of African countries. Next year we have to strengthen it.said Zelensky.
Ukraine has developed the concept of the “Ukraine-Africa” trading house with the opening of its representative offices in the capitals of the most promising countries of the African continent.
In addition to Ukraine’s existing representation in ten African countries (as well as new embassies and business houses), Ukraine must obtain representation in 30 countries on the African continent, Zelensky said. He added that Ukraine needs passports of relations with each country, as it has been done with other countries in Africa.
“Global growth and international stability in this century cannot be imagined without relationships with Africa and other parts of the Global South: Latin America, India, other Asian countries, including China and Southeast Asia, the whole region of the Indian islands and the Pacific Oceans Ukraine must find a format for its leadership in strategic processes in each of these regions, and the role of the Ukrainian diplomatic corps will be decisive in this regard. said the president.
