Zelensky meets with Bahrain's FM to discuss peace formula and humanitarian aid to Ukraine
Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky, who returned from the Czech Republic to Kyiv, received Bahrain's Abdullatif bin Rashid Alzayani, the press service of the President's Office said.
Zelensky noted it is the first visit to Ukraine after the establishment of diplomatic relations between the countries in July 1992.
The president thanked Bahrain for its support of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine and the assistance provided.
The head of state also noted that humanitarian assistance from Bahrain is very important for Ukrainians.
Because our fighting is not only taking place at the front – our people, our society are also on the battlefield. Their work helps our army to de-occupy our territory, Zelensky emphasized.
The president also said Ukraine would surely win because it fights against aggression and defends its homes and families.
The head of state stressed that Ukraine seeks peace, and that is why he offered the international community a Ukrainian peace formula.
And we will be grateful to all states that really want to help Ukraine achieve peace, the president noted.
Zelensky invited Bahrain to take part in the initiated relevant diplomatic process, in particular, to join the implementation of certain points of the formula and to take part in the future Peace Summit.
The President drew special attention to the forced deportation of Ukrainian children to Russia and the search for ways to return them to their homeland and to their families.
During the meeting, they exchange views regarding the participation of the state in the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine, as well as involvement in promising cooperation projects in the humanitarian and economic spheres.
Zelensky emphasized the issue of demining large areas of Ukrainian territory contaminated by hostilities and the practical need for the necessary equipment.
