“The second round of Ukraine-Turkey negotiations on signing the social security agreement was fruitful and constructive. The result of the three-day work was harmonization of the text of the draft social security agreement which, in turn, gives us the opportunity to sign this important document for both countries in the future,” Ukraine’s Deputy Social Policy Minister Vitaliy Muzychenko told an Ukrinform correspondent.
He noted that the main tasks facing officials are the welfare of citizens, creation of additional guarantees of their basic rights, including the right to pension and social security.
The next step will be the preparation of a bilateral administrative agreement which should provide a practical mechanism for the effective implementation and application of the provisions of the Ukraine-Turkey social security agreement. In the near future, the Ukrainian side will prepare a draft agreement and will start consultations with the Turkish side.
As reported, the second round of talks on signing the social security agreement between Ukraine and the Republic of Turkey was held in Ankara on January 12-14.
As of July 16, 2020, almost 16.5 thousand Ukrainians had a Turkey residence permit and most of them lived in Istanbul, Antalya and Ankara.
