Ukraine Entered a 3-Party Energy Agreement

On 15 September, Ukraine concluded the first-ever trilateral pact between Ukraine, Moldova, and Romania

The minister of foreign affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, met with colleagues of Romania, Niku Popescu, and Moldova, Bogdan Aurescu, in Odesa. An official meeting was held on the southern coast of Ukraine, and an important treaty was signed. Representatives of national regulators and leading energy companies from 3 countries also participated in the pact's conclusion. The Ukrainian MFA reported that the agreement will allow the development of the countries' energy systems. It is also noted that this ministerial meeting is the first in the history of tripartite relations between countries.

Triangular cooperation will strengthen energy connectivity. Work with the European Commission on the immediate implementation of the treaty, including funding, is expected to begin soon.

The basis for such a pact was Russian aggression. The countries no longer want to depend on the energy resources of the Russian Federation. Therefore, foreign representatives of the agencies once again supported Ukraine and condemned Russian aggression and provocations. The Ministers of Romania and Moldova announced that they would assist Kyiv on the path of European integration.
