Ukraine's deputy PM for European integration visits Belgrade

Serbia supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, the country's PM Aleksandar Vucic told a visiting Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister for European integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze, the press service of Ukraine's cabinet reported on Friday.

"Our position is clear. And this decision will remain unchanged. A border issue is also difficult and sensitive for us," Vucic was quoted as saying.

Ukraine's Vice Prime Minister, for her part, assured the Serbian side that Ukraine supports the territorial integrity of Serbia and the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, as well as the need for the implementation of the Brussels agreement.

Klympush-Tsintsadze also informed the head of the Serbian government about the aggravation of the situation in eastern Ukraine, caused by the increasing number of attacks by the Russian-backed militant groups.

"We are facing the aggression of an external enemy. Every day we are losing our people who die from Russian weapons. So, the international support of our integrity is extremely important for us," she said.

The Prime Minister of Serbia also noted the importance of signing a free trade agreement with Ukraine, which will strengthen economic ties between the countries.

Klympush-Tsintsadze was in Belgrade as a part of her visit to the Ukrainian peacekeepers who are serving in Kosovo.
