Ukrainian, Latvian ministers agree on logistics cooperation

Ukrainian minister of the Cabinet Oleh Nemchinov and Latvian Economics Minister Ilze Indriksone met Thursday in Rīga and agreed on bilateral economic cooperation in trade, transport, energy and investments, Latvian Television reported on March 23.

Nemchinov took part in an inter-governmental committee meeting while in Latvia, talking about Latvian and Ukrainian cooperation now and after the war.

Talks were held about military cooperation and logistics.

"We have talked about transport and logistics. Especially about three Latvian ports which could be used for transit and the transportation of Ukrainian grains. The railway tracks are the same for Latvia, Ukraine, and Lithuania, but they are different for Poland. We used to have transit through Belarus. It is critically important for us to build a new railway line. I don't think the Ukrainians will wait until the war ends. The task is to implement it as soon as possible," said Nemchinov.

The Ukrainian representative and Latvian Economics Minister agreed that future cooperation is possible and beneficial for both countries.
