Kuleba outlines Foreign Ministry’s priorities for 2021

The priorities of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine in 2021 will be launching the Crimean Platform initiative as an element of countering Russian aggression, improving the effectiveness of cooperation with Ukrainians living abroad and engaging in diplomatic work in new geographical areas.

“Undoubtedly, the issue of countering Russian aggression on all fronts will be among the priorities for 2021. It will be a year of the launch of the Crimean Platform as a new element in the whole architecture of countering Russian aggression. It will be a year of work with Ukrainians living abroad, we will make serious effort to increase the efficiency of relations with Ukrainians abroad,” Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba said during a strategic discussion entitled “Diplomacy 2021: government priorities, society's expectations.”

In addition, the minister said, Ukrainian diplomacy will continue to move along the Asian track and will focus more on Africa.

“We've done a lot of analytics on Africa this year, and now this analytics needs to turn into politics. And we really believe that we're going to have important breakthroughs in bilateral relations with a number of countries – a Latin America country and an Asian country,” he said.

According to Kuleba, another “big intrigue” next year will be Ukraine's relations with the United States.

“It will be very interesting, but I am convinced that this cooperation will make us even stronger and our partnership with the United States will deepen,” Kuleba noted.
