Ukraine and the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan open a new page in the development of bilateral economic relations.

This was discussed at the official meeting between Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine - Minister of Strategic Industries Oleh Urusky and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to Ukraine Wali Monawar, Ukrinform reports with reference to the Government portal.

"Ukraine is ready to deepen relations with Afghanistan. There are political will and significant potential for cooperation. Of course, the current level of trade between the countries is insufficient. We must set more ambitious goals and achieve higher rates of cooperation," Urusky said.

The parties discussed the current state of relations between the countries and prospects for their future development. The need to deepen bilateral cooperation and increase trade between the countries was underscored.

As Ambassador Monawar stressed, the leadership of both Afghanistan and Ukraine have a mutual interest in the development of economic relations in various areas.

"Afghanistan would like to open a new page in cooperation between the countries. Currently, important areas of bilateral cooperation are education, energy, and military-technical field," Monawar said.

The Ambassador also stressed that the trade between the countries should increase and assured that this is an important task of his mission to Ukraine.

Vice Prime Minister Oleh Urusky said: “Our team is ready to promote the development of bilateral relations between the two countries. Reaching agreements within the Chamber of Commerce and Industry is a good sign. At the same time, we expect that the establishment of the Export Credit Agency, which the Ministry of Strategic Industries of Ukraine is currently working on, will further contribute to the deepening of bilateral cooperation."

During the talks, the participants agreed on the need to organize bilateral working visits of relevant delegations to identify specific areas of Ukraine - Afghanistan cooperation.
