"We are close allies and partners, supporting Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression and strengthening the security of our region," said Kariņš, according to a government press release.
The leaders of the governments of Latvia and Poland discussed providing more support, including the supply of ammunition to Ukraine.
Kariņš and Morawiecki also discussed issues related to Ukraine's efforts to join the EU and NATO on the same day that a letter from Kariņš strongly backing Ukraine's accession to both institutions appeared in the Financial Times.
The Latvian Prime Minister emphasized that, despite the continuation of hostilities, the EU should start accession negotiations with Ukraine this year in order to promote the necessary reforms for European integration and to clearly confirm Ukraine's membership in the European family. It is also necessary to think about the future, after the war, therefore, according to the Prime Minister, the open door policy of NATO should be maintained, giving the opportunity for Ukraine to join when the external conditions allow it.
Thank you, Prime Minister of Poland @MorawieckiM, for the meeting. We will stay at the forefront in supporting #Ukraine and urge others to do likewise. Our joint priority is strengthening #security of our region. 🇱🇻🇵🇱🇪🇺 pic.twitter.com/0Lq3i3m2vc— Krišjānis Kariņš (@krisjaniskarins) March 15, 2023
