Ukraine and Slovakia have a shared vision of Europe's energy security and the risks posed by the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project.

"I am glad that we have shared vision of Europe's energy security and agree that projects such as Nord Stream 2 pose far-reaching risks to the European Union and its unity," President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said at a joint press conference with President of Slovakia Zuzana Čaputová in Bratislava, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

At the same time, the President of Ukraine thanked Slovakia for its key role in ensuring reverse gas supplies to Ukraine and told about the agreement with Slovak partners on taking full advantage of Ukraine's transit potential, in particular, the agreement on Asia-Europe combined transportation.

"Our countries are an important transport bridge between the West and the East, and our common position will be stronger if we create multimodal logistics centres for cargo handling on this route," Zelensky stressed.

Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Vladyslav Kryklii and Minister of Transport and Construction of the Slovak Republic Andrej Doležal signed a memorandum of cooperation within the Silk Road Economic Belt initiative which will facilitate the creation of multimodal terminals in Ukraine and Slovakia on this route.

As reported, President Volodymyr Zelensky makes a state visit to Slovakia on Thursday.
