Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze, while on a working visit to Australia, met with former Minister for Foreign Affairs of Australia Julie Bishop. The parties discussed a number of bilateral and multilateral issues on the agenda of cooperation between Ukraine and Australia.
The Vice Prime Minister noted that Ukraine is interested in developing cooperation on important bilateral and international issues. "As you mentioned earlier, like-minded people who are united through common values, faith in the power and inviolability of international law, must stick together. Ukraine is eager to enhance the political dialogue between our States. This, above all, will contribute to the formation of an international coalition of like-minded states, those supporting us in Europe and around the world", stressed Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze.
Julie Bishop, in her turn, stressed that Australia would continue a policy to support the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, and will spare no effort to bring the perpetrators to justice for downing the MH-17 flight.
"Given your personal uncompromising stance to the MH-17 tragedy, I want to assure you that Ukraine will make the best efforts for this. I believe that in the near future we will see the results and conclusions of the credible international investigations", said Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze.
Besides, the Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine told that this year's November 24 Kyiv will host an International Forum to commemorate the 85th anniversary of the 1932-1933 Holodmor Ukraine Remembers - the World Acknowledges. "We invite world leaders, government officials, politicians, public activists, and prominent Holodomor scholars and researchers from many countries to participate in the events", stressed Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze. "I hope that Australian politicians and parliamentarians who support the recognition of the Holodomor can join the International Forum", she emphasized.
