The President of Romania, Klaus Iohannis, met on Thursday with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, in Vilnius, on the sidelines of the Summit of the Three Seas Initiative.

“Substantive discussion with President Zelensky in Vilnius, on the sidelines of the Three Seas Initiative summit. We reiterated our strong support for Ukraine, on all relevant dimensions, as well as our determination to strengthen regional connectivity, sustainable cross-border cooperation and energy security,” Iohannis said after the meeting with Zelensky.

The 9th edition of the Summit of the Three Seas Initiative (I3M) takes place on Thursday in Vilnius. According to the Presidential Administration, at the I3M meeting the head of state will plead for the further efficiency of the Initiative and obtaining concrete results, especially regarding the improvement of regional strategic connectivity on the North-South axis.

Also, the Romanian head of state will highlight the increasing relevance of I3M and its valuable potential, including in the context in which more and more states in the region and at the global level are showing their interest in being involved in this platform. Iohannis will also address the perspective of stimulating connectivity with Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova, both of which are associated participating states of the Initiative, as a result of the decisions taken at the Bucharest Summit.

At the same time, he will emphasize that strengthening the resilience of the region as a whole is a vital necessity in the current geopolitical context. In this sense, Klaus Iohannis will highlight, in particular, the added value of the Rail2Sea and Via Carpathia projects, the implementation of which will improve military mobility and resilience in the field of infrastructure in the region, stated the Presidential Administration.
