Ukrainian foreign minister offers thanks to Kingdom

Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn told his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba that he hoped a peaceful solution could be found soon to end the conflict in Ukraine. The two foreign ministers met for bilateral talks on November 10 on the sidelines of the 40th and 41st ASEAN Summits in Phnom Penh.

Sokhonn congratulated Ukraine for having signed the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia (TAC) with ASEAN on the same day.

“Deputy Prime Minister Prak Sokhonn reiterated Cambodia’s positions on the war in Ukraine. He hoped a peaceful solution would be reached soon so that Ukraine can regain peace, stability and development,” said a press statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

Sokhonn also announced that Cambodia was prepared to train Ukrainian deminers, in collaboration with Japan.

Kuleba thanked Cambodia for its consistent positions in principle on the war in Ukraine. He also thanked the Kingdom for its generous offer to assist Ukrainian deminers, and its efforts that enabled Ukraine’s accession into the TAC.

The ministry said the two foreign ministers had noted Cambodia-Ukraine relations were friendly. This relationship is reflected by the recent high-level meetings, the upcoming mutual appointments of their respective countries’ ambassadors and an agreement to establish bilateral consultations between the two foreign ministries.
