On July 21, the first visit of Ukraine's foreign affairs minister to Islamabad took place in the history of Ukrainian-Pakistani relations. Dmytro Kuleba met with his Pakistani counterpart Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and prime minister Shahbaz Sharif.
First, the parties discussed the challenges the world will face due to Russia's withdrawal from the grain agreements. Prices for grain products will rise, and many countries will be left without access to food. Pakistan is one of the regular importers of grain from Ukraine, and Kuleba thanked his colleagues for their cooperation in finding solutions for alternative ways to deliver food from Ukraine to international markets.
The parties also discussed bilateral economic cooperation between the states and set an approximate date for the Ukrainian-Pakistani commission, at which these issues will be discussed in more detail: trade, IT, engineering, agriculture, and education.
