Ukraine's Foreign Minister Visits Spain: Discussion on EU Accession and Military Aid

Thursday, 31 August 2023

Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has arrived on a visit to Spain. 

Dmytro Kuleba posted a video on Twitter of a walk with his Spanish counterpart, José Manuel Albares, on 31 August and provided details of the discussions. He also "applauded" Spain's presidency of the EU Council.

"Opening Ukraine's EU accession talks in 2023 is top priority. Ukraine is making all the necessary steps, and so does the EU. We also discussed expanding Spain’s much-appreciated military aid to Ukraine," Ukraine’s Foreign Minister added.

On Wednesday, 30 August, Kuleba visited France, where he met with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Spain is in the process of forming a new government. Last week, King Felipe VI proposed the leader of the Partido Popular (People's Party), Alberto Núñez Feijóo, as the country's prime minister.
