Kyiv and Tokyo should strengthen partnerships, says Ukrainian speaker
Ukraine wants to strengthen the dialogue with Japan with a view of further developing their partnerships, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Volodymyr Lytvyn has said.
At a meeting with Prime Minister of Japan Yoshihiko Noda, the Ukrainian speaker thanked the head of Japan’s government for the reception of the Ukrainian parliamentary delegation.
“We have had many high-level meetings and an interesting dialogue, which I hope will allow us to deepen our relations and give a real meaning to the idea of global partnership,” Lytvyn said.
Kyiv is looking forward to the visit of Noda because it will be the first visit in the history of bilateral relations, he added.
The speaker also expressed the hope that this year, when Ukraine and Japan celebrate the 20th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations, the conditions will be created for the visit of the foreign minister of Japan to Ukraine.
“Ukraine seeks to comprehensively strengthen the dialogue with Japan aimed both at further development of partnership and friendly relations and the cooperation in the international arena,” Lytvyn said.
