The first meeting of Lublin Triangle national coordinators, which was established by the Foreign Ministers of Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania in July this year, took place on 17 September. Vasyl Bodnar (Ukraine), Marcin Pszydach (Poland), and Dalius Čekuolis (Lithuania) have become the coordinators of this tripartite co-operation mechanism.
The parties discussed the preparations for the Lublin Triangle Foreign Ministers’ next meeting, which is to take place in Kyiv on Minister Dmytro Kuleba’s initiative.
One of the main tasks of the Lublin Triangle’s should be the coordination of the three states countering actions to the current challenges and threats to our common security. Among the priority topics in the co-operation is the joint counteraction to Russia’s hybrid threats, in particular in the fight against misinformation. The importance of maintaining close co-operation within international organizations was emphasised.
“We are united not only by common values and interests but also by a common responsibility for our countries’ future and the region in which we live and which has been at the centre of global policy in recent years,” Vasyl Bodnar said.
The coordinators paid serious attention to the situation in Belarus and some other countries in the region.
Vasyl Bodnar has expressed gratitude to the partners for their constant support of our state territorial integrity and sovereignty and support in counteracting Russian aggression. He has also informed his colleagues about the Crimean Platform’s main goals and invited Poland and Lithuania to actively co-operate within the framework of the platform, which aims for the de-occupation of Crimea.
