Ukraine, Indonesia agree to deepen trade and political relations

On March 30, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba had a phone conversation with Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia Retno Marsudi.

“The protection and support of citizens of Ukraine, who are now in Indonesia, are my priority. I look forward to working with you on this issue,” the minister said.

The minister also expressed gratitude to the Indonesian side for the decision not to apply sanctions against citizens of Ukraine who have expired documents but cannot leave the country due to transport restrictions.

Kuleba noted that Indonesia is an important partner of Ukraine in the region of Southeast Asia and one of its leaders. In this context, he noted the growth in bilateral trade, which, according to the results of last year, exceeded USD 1 billion. The ministers agreed to work together to further develop trade between the countries.

At the same time, the Ukrainian minister underlined the desire of Ukraine to establish closer political cooperation with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Kuleba stressed the readiness of Ukraine to welcome President of Indonesia Joko Widodo in Kyiv and renewed the invitation to the Indonesian foreign minister to visit Ukraine at a convenient time.
