Ukraine is interested in signing a Ukrainian-Slovak agreement as soon as possible, which will allow to resume the full operation of the International Airport "Uzhgorod".
This was stated by President Volodymyr Zelensky in a telephone conversation with the President of Slovakia Zuzana Caputova, according to the website of the President of Ukraine.
"This airport is extremely important for Ukraine and Transcarpathian region. I expect Slovakia to approve the agreement soon. I am also convinced that after the end of quarantine measures, our governments should make joint efforts to restore the cooperation in trade, economic, transport and cross-border areas," – Zelensky said.
The parties also exchanged views on the situation in Ukraine and Slovakia regarding the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures taken by the governments of the two countries to overcome the effects of the crisis and restore economic activity.
