Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba discussed the priorities of cooperation between Kyiv and Helsinki in 2021 with his Finish counterpart Pekka Haavisto. This was reported by the press service of Ukraine's Foreign Ministry.
"I am convinced that next year Ukraine and Finland will be able to fully unleash the potential of cooperation in combating COVID-19, countering hybrid threats, increasing trade and investment, and reforming education," Kuleba said.
The ministers agreed to start a dialogue at the level of foreign ministries in the field of combating hybrid threats.
"Ukraine has invaluable practical experience in countering aggression in all its dimensions: not only military but also informational, economic, social, and cultural. In turn, Finland is one of the leading European centers for the analysis of hybrid threats. Exchange of experience and coordination in this area will strengthen the national security of both Ukraine and Finland, as well as their partners," the Ukrainian side stressed.
Finland was also invited to take part in next year's summit of the Crimean platform.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine plans to invite Russia to participate in negotiations on the de-occupation of Crimea.
