< /p> The head of the Belgian government, Vincent van Kvikenborn, noted that Foreign Minister Aji Labib wrote to her Ukrainian counterpart Dmitry Kuleba and assured him of Kyiv's support. The head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry responded favorably to her assurances.

Ukraine and Belgium are not in a confrontation over the illegal trip of current Foreign Minister Aji Lyabib to Russian-occupied Crimea in 2021. This was stated by the Federal Minister of Justice and Acting Prime Minister of Belgium Vincent van Kvikenborn to the Belgian TV channel VTM.

According to him, on the Day of Ukrainian Statehood Lyabib wrote a letter to her Ukrainian colleague Dmitry Kulebi, in which she expressed support for Ukraine and emphasized that Crimea and Donbass are Ukraine.

Quickenborn added that the head of the Ukrainian Minister Dmitry Kuleba responded to a letter from his Belgian counterpart.

“On July 29 – the day before yesterday – a response was received from her colleague, Mr. Kuleba, in which he directly states that he does not doubt for a second that our country and Ms. Lyabib herself support the territorial integrity of Ukraine,” the acting head of government said.< /p>

He also noted that there are no problems between Belgium and Ukraine.

“There is no breach of trust. It is very clear from the exchange of letters that Ukraine and Belgium are on the same wavelength,” concluded Quickenborn .

It should be noted that now the official replaces Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, who is on vacation in the United States.

Recall that the day before, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry reacted to the visit of the Belgian minister to Crimea, emphasizing that a visit to the temporarily occupied Crimean peninsula is allowed only if you are traveling from the mainland of Ukraine.

As a reminder, the Belgian Consulate in Russia has stopped issuing short-term visas, including tourist visas, from July.
