Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba and Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen have discussed the issues of support for Ukraine’s economic and financial stability.
The meeting was held as part of an official visit of the Ukrainian Foreign Minister to Copenhagen on January 27, Ukrinform reports, referring to the ministry’s press service.
The parties agreed on further participation of Denmark in supporting the reform process in Ukraine, in particular in the framework of Danish technical assistance in the next phase of the Danish Neighbourhood Programme (DANEP) in 2022-2026. As expected, Denmark will allocate EUR 73 million for the projects in Ukraine.
The interlocutors paid special attention to the possibilities for construction by Danish companies of multi-purpose vessels in Ukraine, in particular for the needs of Ukrainian border guards and rescue services. In this context, the Ukrainian and Danish parties agreed to start intergovernmental negotiations on the development of a draft bilateral agreement on shipbuilding based on Ukrainian infrastructure.
