Zelensky, Kurz discuss join investment projects, COVID-19 vaccination campaign.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and Federal Chancellor of the Republic of Austria Sebastian Kurz praised the high dynamics of bilateral dialogue and effective cooperation in many areas during a phone conversation on June 2.

As the President’s press service reports, Zelensky informed Kurz in detail about the current security situation in eastern Ukraine and the temporarily occupied Crimea, especially in the context of the recent escalation along Ukraine's borders and the ongoing militarization of the peninsula.

“In this regard, the President noted the importance of the solidarity of the international community with Ukraine and thanked the Federal Chancellor of Austria for Vienna's firm position in support of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of our state,” reads the statement.

Moreover, the parties discussed in detail the implementation of the agreements reached as a result of the official visit of the President of Ukraine to the Republic of Austria in September last year. The improvement of indicators of bilateral trade and economic cooperation despite the existing epidemic restrictions was praised.

The interlocutors also discussed progress in the implementation of a number of investment projects in Ukraine with the participation of Austrian business.

As noted, Zelensky and Kurz exchanged views on the steps taken by both countries in the context of counteracting the spread of COVID-19 and ensuring that citizens are vaccinated with a quality vaccine.

“The parties paid special attention to the priority tasks of the Ukraine-EU dialogue. According to the President of Ukraine, a powerful stimulus to reforms and implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU is the recognition by our partners of Ukraine's European prospects,” the press service informs.

The Federal Chancellor of the Republic of Austria supported the European integration aspirations of our state.

The President of Ukraine also informed Kurz in detail about the Crimean Platform initiative aimed at de-occupation and ensuring systematic monitoring of the security and humanitarian situation in occupied Crimea. Zelensky invited the Federal Chancellor of Austria to pay an official visit to Ukraine in the near future.
