The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine makes efforts to hold a meeting of the Lublin Triangle interparliamentary assembly in Warsaw in December.
“We are actively developing the Lublin Triangle with Poland and Lithuania. The initiative of Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal to hold a meeting at the level of the Lublin Triangle Heads of Government is on the agenda now. We also make efforts to hold a meeting of the Lublin Triangle interparliamentary assembly in Warsaw in December this year with the participation of parliamentarians from Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania,” Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said at an online briefing on Wednesday, October 20, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
He noted that the activities of the Lublin Triangle went far beyond the foreign ministries of the participating states. According to him, other government agencies ask Ukrainian diplomats to organize meetings in the Lublin Triangle format. In this context, he cited as an example the initiative of the Ministry of Communities and Territories Development of Ukraine to hold a trilateral meeting with Lithuanian and Polish colleagues.
"We gladly took this request and work towards its implementation," the minister assured.
Kuleba also informed that the Ministry would welcome on October 27 the members of the national youth councils of Ukraine, Poland and Lithuania who would sign a memorandum on the establishment of the Youth Lublin Triangle as an international platform for youth cooperation in culture and public diplomacy.
The minister summed up that the Lublin Triangle actively developed and covered all new areas of cooperation between the three countries at all levels: heads of governments, parliaments, civil society.
The Lublin Triangle is a trilateral platform for political, economic, cultural, and social cooperation between Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine, aimed in particular at strengthening dialogue between the countries, supporting Ukraine's integration into the European Union and NATO, and jointly countering Russian aggression.
