On October 31, the first ever intergovernmental consultations between Ukraine and the Czech Republic took place in Kyiv, co-chaired by the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal and the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Petr Fiala.

Denys Shmyhal emphasized that the visit of the Czech delegation to Kyiv in one of the most difficult periods of history is a manifestation of great solidarity with Ukraine. He thanked the Government and people of the Czech Republic for their comprehensive assistance.

Among the main issues of the intergovernmental consultations with the Czech Republic, which currently chairs the EU Council, were the strengthening of support for Ukraine, the restoration and modernization of our state, and future European integration.

"It is extremely important for us to launch negotiations on joining the EU as soon as the European Commission provides its opinion on Ukraine's success in implementing the recommendations. We expect that the Czech Republic will contribute to the start of negotiations in 2023," the Prime Minister of Ukraine noted.

The Government of the Czech Republic confirmed its commitment to supporting the integration of Ukraine into the internal market of the European Union, and also noted the progress of our country in implementing the recommendations of the European Commission.
