Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin will be in Canada on a working visit on November 17-18. This was reported on Saturday by the press service of the Foreign Ministry.
The main purpose of the visit is to participate in the Halifax International Forum on Security.
"As part of the forum, the minister is going to participate in a panel discussion, hold a number of bilateral meetings, in particular with Canadian Minister of National Defense Harjit Sajjan, First Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada Ian Shugart, members of the Canadian Parliament, NATO Deputy Secretary General Rose Gethemuller, US senators and congressmen," told the press service of the Foreign Ministry.
Before the visit to Canada, Klimkin visited the USA, where he had already held a number of meetings.
Earlier Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin met with Kurt Volker, the U.S. Special Representative to Ukraine, during his working visit to the U.S. The parties have discussed the further steps towards countering Russian aggression, as Kateryna Zelenko, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, reported on Twitter.
According to her, Klimkin’s visit to the U.S. began with his meeting with Volker.
“The steps on the international platforms for countering Russia’s attempts to legitimize the occupation have been agreed. The political pressure has to be enhanced,” Zelenko wrote.
Earlier, Volker said that instead of meeting the Minsk Agreements, Russian Federation and moving towards peace in Ukraine, Russian Federation is subsidizing corrupted leaders of the militants and conducts sham elections in Donbas.
