The parties expressed mutual interest in the successful implementation of the significant trade, economic and investment potential of the Ukrainian-Saudi Arabian cooperation.
“Dzheppar informed her Saudi colleague in detail about the systemic violations of human rights in the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, temporarily occupied by the Russian Federation. She noted the continuing repression by the Russian occupation authorities against the residents of the peninsula who disagree with the occupation, among whom the Crimean Tatars are the most persecuted, in particular, for religious reasons,” the report reads.
