Head of the President’s Office Andriy Yermak invited the Republic of Korea to join the restoration of Ukrainian regions or cities affected by the actions of Russian troops.
He made an offer during the meeting with the parliamentary delegation of the Republic of Korea headed by Lee Jun-seok, leader of the ruling People Power Party, the press service of the President’s Office informs.
As noted, the visit of the Korean parliamentarians and its results will help identify key areas for further deepening cooperation between the two countries, in particular during the reconstruction of Ukraine’s regions, which have suffered enormous damage as a result of the war.
In this context, Yermak announced the initiative of President Zelensky to invite democracies to take patronage over a region or a city in Ukraine that needs to be restored and urged the Korean side to join this project.
The Head of the President’s Office thanked for Korea’s consistent support for Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty and noted that today our country’s main task is to win the unprovoked war started by Russia.
According to him, Ukraine’s goal is to achieve peace as soon as possible, because the longer the war lasts, the greater are the risks for the whole world. At the same time, he stressed that our country especially needs military assistance to win.
“We are confident that this will be our victory and the victory of our friends and partners,” said the Head of the President’s Office.
During the meeting, the parties noted the importance of the fact that the high-level Korean delegation saw the situation in Ukraine personally, as well as visited Bucha and Irpin and had an opportunity to see the consequences of horrific war crimes committed by Russian invaders.
The Head of the President’s Office and the delegation of the Republic of Korea also discussed some promising areas of post-war cooperation, in particular in the field of innovative automotive industry. Yermak suggested discussing these and other potentially interesting joint projects during a video conference with members of the government and business representatives of the two countries.
Moreover, Yermak touched upon a multilateral agreement on security guarantees for Ukraine developed by the Ukrainian side and its partners.
