Ukraine’s Deputy Prime Minister Oleh Urusky said they were ready to deepen relations with Afghanistan and improve their economic relations.
Urusky met Afghan Ambassador Wali Monawar, Ukrainian media reported on Monday.
“Ukraine is ready to deepen relations with Afghanistan. There is 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 bilateral relations and prospects for their future development, while stressing on the need to increase trade cooperation.
Monawar said that the leadership of both nations have 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.
Work is underway on agreements with Ukraine’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry, along with the establishment of the Export Credit Agency.
