Zelensky hopes for active cooperation with Georgia within Crimean Platform.

President Volodymyr Zelensky has expressed gratitude to Georgia for supporting the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine and hopes for active cooperation with the Georgian side within the Crimean Platform.

He said this during a joint press conference with President of Georgia Salome Zourabichvili in Kyiv on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports

"We hope for active cooperation with the Georgian side within the framework of the Crimean Platform in order to protect the rights of Crimeans and de-occupy the Crimean peninsula," Zelensky said.

He also thanked Georgia for its continued support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, non-recognition of the attempted annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea, and condemnation of Russian aggression in Donbas, eastern Ukraine.

President of Georgia Salome Zourabichvili is on an official visit to Ukraine on June 23. In addition to talks with President Volodymyr Zelensky, she will also meet with Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal and Verkhovna Rada Chairman Dmytro Razumkov.

As a reminder, the Crimean Platform is a new consultative and coordination format initiated by Ukraine to improve the efficiency of the international response to the occupation of Crimea, respond to growing security challenges, step up international pressure on Russia, prevent further human rights violations, protect victims of the occupation regime, and achieve the de-occupation of Crimea.

The first Crimean Platform summit is scheduled for August 23, 2021.
