Literally: "The negotiations in this format were primarily devoted to the issue of preserving the single market principle and free access of Ukrainian agricultural products to the EU market."
Details: According to Zelenskyy, a mechanism has been created for ongoing dialogue: "A joint coordination platform for the export and transit of Ukrainian agricultural products. This platform should continue to work and help resolve all problematic issues in the field of agricultural products."
Zelenskyy believes that there should be no unilateral restrictions on Ukraine as a future member of the European Union. It is also necessary to protect the competitive advantages of each EU member in a free trade environment.
