"It is extremely important for us that we are here today and we will discuss very important issues, we will once again confirm our support for Ukraine in this process of resistance against Russian aggression. We talked about our bilateral agenda, we discussed the infrastructure project we have together. Moldova, like other countries, is trying to help Ukraine, we also talked about our European future. Ukraine keeps Moldova safe and we are grateful for that. The Republic of Moldova respects the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine within the internationally recognized limits.

For his part, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky thanked Moldovan citizens for hosting Ukrainian refugees.*

" Thank you, all the people of Moldova for hosting our refugee people since the first days of this large-scale war. We will never forget this. We talked about our bilateral, infrastructure priorities, on which we will sign agreements in the near future. Ukraine is ready to join NATO and I believe that security guarantees are very important not only for us, but also for Moldova. Today I will have discussions with partners about potential coalitions in the future and the Coalition of Patriots, which is our new initiative. We will also discuss possibilities of support on the battlefield," said the leader from Kiev.
