He said that the topic of "countering common threats from the East and common opportunities in the West" will be discussed during the meetings.
Right before departure, Zelensky ordered the Cabinet of Ministers to pay salary arrears to doctors and teachers within two days.
"I have been received a lot of private messages today about the fact that teachers and doctors in some regions of Ukraine have not been paid since September. I understand that we have a new government and a lot of work, but these are the most important and prior issues. I ask the government to come together and resolve this issue in a very positive manner," the president of Ukraine said.
As we reported earlier, during the presentation of the draft state budget for 2020 for the second reading, Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk has said that the Cabinet of Ministers plans to significantly improve the situation of young teachers over the next few years, as well as to pay teachers the accidental benefits for the difference in the number of students that have not been paid for years.
