Ukraine and the United Kingdom have signed an agreement on political cooperation, free trade, and strategic partnership between the countries, which could simplify the visa regime for Ukrainian citizens. This was stated by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba after the document was signed by President Volodymyr Zelensky and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson, the press service of the Foreign Ministry reports.
The agreement reaffirms Britain's support for Ukraine's European integration and Euro-Atlantic aspirations, as well as places special emphasis on strengthening military and military-technical cooperation. In addition, the willingness of the parties to improve cooperation in the field of migration, in particular, to continue working on visa facilitation is also envisaged.
"Europe has two flanks. There is a western flank - Great Britain. There is an eastern flank - Ukraine. And today these two flanks have become even closer to each other. This means that Europe has become stronger," Kuleba said.
As we reported earlier, British experts will arrive in Ukraine in the near future in order to assess the Ukrainian system of issuing biometric passports.
