During the meeting, the First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleksandr Korniienko first of all informed about Ukraine’s updated diplomatic strategy, in particular, the embassies already opened and renovated in Africa, as well as those planned.

“The Parliament of Ukraine is working to strengthen cooperation with the countries of the ‘non-Western world’, said Oleksandr Korniienko, adding that he personally held about 60 bilateral meetings during the Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union, half of which were high-level.

That is why the First Vice Speaker proposed to hold a joint meeting at the level of committees and groups.

At the same time, he informed his colleague in more detail about the Grain from Ukraine programme and its results: “Ukraine remains a guarantor of food security”.

For his part, Karamba Diaby, the Chairman of the Bundestag’s West African Friendship Group, asked about the energy situation in Ukraine.

According to Oleksandr Korniienko, this demonstrates that the international community does not stand aside from the problems arising from the full-scale russian aggression.

In addition, the parties considered the possibility of future cooperation in the energy sector, in particular, the exchange of experience in Ukrainian technologies. 

In conclusion, the First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine expressed his gratitude for the solidarity, support and steadfast position.
