Details. The first country he visited was Senegal, which currently heads the African Union. During a meeting with the Head of the country's Foreign Ministry, Aïssata Tall Sall, Mr. Kuleba urged to stop the spread of russian influence in Africa.

“The key topic of the Minister's negotiations will be the consolidation of political support for Ukraine from the countries of the global south against the backdrop of russian aggression, in particular the latest attempt to annex Ukrainian territories,” the statement reads.

Among other priorities, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs names the strengthening of Ukraine's role as a guarantor of world food security, cooperation in the field of education, promoting Ukrainian IT products, in particular the Diya platform, creating new opportunities for Ukrainian exports.

As part of the visits, a number of business forums with the participation of leading Ukrainian and African companies are also planned.

It is noted that the tour is an important element of the African Strategy developed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the instructions of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and a “road map” for the development of Ukraine's relations with the region.
