The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine is making efforts to hold a meeting of the Lublin Triangle interparliamentary assembly in Warsaw in December.
“We are actively developing the Lublin Triangle with Poland and Lithuania… The initiative of Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal to hold a meeting at the level of the Lublin Triangle Heads of Government is on the agenda now. We also make efforts to hold a meeting of the Lublin Triangle interparliamentary assembly in Warsaw in December this year with the participation of parliamentarians from Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania,” Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba announced.
He noted that the Lublin Triangle activities went far beyond the foreign ministries of the participating states. Other government agencies have requested that Ukrainian diplomats organise the meetings in the Lublin Triangle format. In this context, Kuleba cited as an example the initiative of the Ministry of Communities and Territories Development of Ukraine to hold a trilateral meeting with Lithuanian and Polish colleagues. The implementation of the idea is currently underway.
On 27 October, the Ministry will welcome the members of the national youth councils of Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania who will sign a memorandum on the establishment of the Youth Lublin Triangle as an international platform for youth cooperation in culture and public diplomacy, the minister added.
As a reminder, the Lublin Triangle is a trilateral platform for political, economic, cultural, and social cooperation between Lithuania, Poland, and Ukraine. The initiative aims to strengthen the dialogue between the countries, support Ukraine’s integration into the European Union and NATO, and jointly counter Russian aggression.
