 “The consultations held in the format of a video conference were co-chaired by Mr. Dmytro Senik, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine (CDTO), and Dr. Adel bin Siraj Mirdad, Deputy Foreign Minister of Political and Economic Affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine informs.

As noted, the sides discussed issues of political, trade, economic and investment cooperation as well as the ways of interaction within international organizations.

“Ukraine is ready to offer Saudi Arabia a number of projects in investment, military and technical and agricultural spheres,” Dmytro Senik said, emphasizing the interest of domestic exporters in entering the Kingdom’s market.
