Klimkin initiates creation of communication channel to solve problematic issues with Poland
Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin is in favor of creating a channel for communication with Poland on problematic issues.
"Let's create some very simple channel of communication. We are always ready. And before doing something, we need to consider it together," Klimkin said during the National Expert Forum "Ukraine: In Pursuance of Balance" in Kyiv on Tuesday.
"For example, we think that we need a discussion on the monument [in the Polish village of Hruszowice]. Let's also discuss other issues. We are ready for this," the foreign minister said.
He also called on the Polish side to "talk like friends." Friends can have questions that need to be discussed. It is necessary to listen to each other," Klimkin said.
According to the minister, the Ukrainian project is impossible without the Ukrainians discovering their history for themselves.
"We [with Poland] do not have a common historical narrative. We are working on it. It exists in Poland, but this does not mean that the Polish negative vibes are true by definition, and ours are 100 per cent wrong. Sometimes we conduct this discussion with total politicization," Klimkin said.
