President: Ukraine’s full integration into European energy sector impossible without support of Polish partners.

Ukraine and Poland should strengthen Europe’s energy security, in particular by diversifying the energy supply sources.

"Strengthening the economic ties and economic integration with the European Union countries is the way that Poland once made successfully. And today we are moving along the same path, counting on Poland’s support," President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said at the Ukraine-Poland Economic Forum in Odesa on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He mentioned cooperation in the energy, aerospace, defence, tourism, and IT sectors one of the important elements.

"Together with Poland, we should strengthen the energy security of Europe. This interaction is an important element of common security and diversification of energy supply sources. And full integration of Ukraine into the European energy sector is impossible without the support and cooperation of our Polish partners," the President of Ukraine said.

Moreover, according to him, Poland plays a leading role in the Three Seas Initiative, Via Carpatia and Via Baltica infrastructure projects.

"I am sure that we can and should be close partners in the implementation of these and other important regional infrastructure projects," Zelensky said.

In turn, President of the Republic of Poland Andrzej Duda noted that Ukrainian railways and seaports could become a part of Ukraine-Poland transport corridor as an important element of the international transport network.

In particular, according to him, such a transport corridor will have the potential for transporting goods from Western Europe and Turkey, as well as servicing trade flows from East Asia. Therefore, it is very important that Ukrainian and Polish businesses work together to develop the concept of this corridor and invest in it.

"I have no doubt that we will have larger cooperation than before, and that we will even increase our domestic and foreign markets," the President of Poland said.
