Ambassador of Ukraine to the U.S. Valeriy Chaly welcomed a delegation of Members of the Ukrainian Parliament Sergiy Berezenko, Artur Gerasymov, Pavlo Rizanenko and Iryna Friz, together with experts Sergiy Taran and Georgi Vashadze, who are visiting Washington DC, at the Embassy of Ukraine. Valeriy Chaly showed them around the newly renovated and expanded premises of the Consular section. The Ambassador noted that these reconstructed and open rooms as well as services provided often give the first impression about a new Ukraine to many Americans and Ukrainians living in the United States. Ukraine’s Ambassador and the Ukrainian MPs also discussed priorities of the U.S.-Ukraine agenda.
The Head of State expressed gratitude for a strong bipartisan support for Ukraine from the U.S. Congress in the issue of countering the ongoing Russian aggression, enhancement of defense capacity of our country and implementation of the internal reforms.
The key attention was focused on the opportunities of intensification of the investment activity of American companies in Ukraine, as well as on the development of bilateral trade, particularly in the context of expansion of exports of Ukrainian commodities to the United States.
The parties discussed the implementation of structural reforms in Ukraine and the future events to be conducted shortly.
On the eve of the G20 meeting that will take place in Germany, the parties coordinated positions as regards termination of Russian aggression in Donbas and return of Crimea. In this context, the President put forward proposals on the more active involvement of the U.S. in the peace process in Donbas. The parties agreed to continue consultations with a view to elaborate joint measures.
