Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal has started his visit to Poland and has already met with his Polish counterpart Donald Tusk.

"We start our visit to Poland with a meeting with Prime Minister Donald Tusk. We will coordinate our issues before the joint meeting of the governments," the Ukrainian prime minister wrote.

Shmyhal also added that the meeting will focus on weapons for Ukraine, the situation at the border, and the development of trade and infrastructure.

"We are looking forward to a pragmatic and constructive dialogue and the development of effective solutions," the Prime Minister said. 

After the meeting with Tusk, the Ukrainian Prime Minister announced the next round of government consultations.

"Ukraine and Poland are strategic allies. We must clearly understand how important mutual support and the potential of our cooperation is. We discussed a number of issues of mutual interest in our cooperation. We paid a lot of attention to complex topics: the situation at the border and trade in the agricultural sector. We understand how we will move forward. We expect exact responses from Poland to the steps we have proposed. Most of these have already been completed. We expect the European Commission to ban the transit and export of goods from Russia and Belarus, as well as to approve our agreement on joint control at border crossing points. Strategic relations involve mutual trust and openness, the ability to engage in dialogue and compromise. We hope that today's consultations will bring results and we will find ways to resolve the problematic issues," he said.
