Ukraine FM likely to make emergency visit to Pakistan


ISLAMABAD: Ukraine Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba may be making an emergency visit to Pakistan this week, The News reported on Wednesday.

According to sources, Kuleba may visit Pakistan in the coming next three days and meet his Pakistani counterpart Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, and will potentially discuss Ukraine’s food crisis in the wake of the Russia-Ukraine war.

Government officials say that Pakistan wants the war to end and hopes for “a peaceful resolution of the conflict”.

However, Pakistan has consistently abstained from voting against Russia on United Nations National Assembly forums that call for the withdrawal of troops from Ukraine, and has maintained a neutral stance on the war.

Last year, FM Bilawal maintained that Islamabad was not taking sides in the conflict.

Islamabad’s position is influenced by its diplomatic obligation to maintain balance in ties with major world powers. The Foreign Office has said that “we want to have broad-based, objective, balanced and mutually beneficial relationships with all major powers”.
