After his meeting with Foreign Minister Eli Cohen, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky writes on Telegram that Israel “has always been our important partner in the Middle East.”

“I am grateful for the humanitarian aid provided,” he writes. “We discussed the country’s participation in post-war reconstruction. Ukraine could use Israel’s experience in demining.”

Zelensky adds that he hopes the visit will contribute to the deepening of bilateral cooperation.
