Zelenskyy in Saudi Arabia

On May 19, the president held meetings with the political leadership of the UAE, Oman and Kuwait

Today Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his team arrived in Saudi Arabia. Mustafa Dzhemilev, the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, arrived with the president. Crimean Tatars are brothers of Ukrainians. Ukrainians are Christians, Tatars are Muslims, and it is our duty to protect the Muslim people, who today are again subjected to Kremlin annihilation in occupied Crimea.

"Our priorities are the return of all political prisoners of Crimea and the temporarily occupied territories, the return of all prisoners and illegally deported people, the presentation of our peace formula, to implementation," Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Zelenskyy met with the UAE delegation headed by the vice prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nagayan. The parties discussed food security within the framework of the Grain initiative.

Further, Zelenskyy met with the vice prime minister for international relations and cooperation of the Sultanate of Oman, the special representative of the Sultan at an international forums Asaad bin Tariq Al-Said. The topic of conversation was the Peace formula, recognised by the governments of many European countries. Zelenskyy stressed the importance of supporting Oman in strengthening global security.

A meeting of the Ukrainian delegation with the crown prince of Kuwait, Sheikh Meshal Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, was also held. The president thanked the prince for his support for Ukraine, which has never been demonstrated during UN meetings and voting.
