South Korea Prime Minister Han Duck-soo on Friday reaffirmed the country’s support for Ukraine to help its fight against Russia during phone talks with his Ukrainian counterpart, Denys Shmyhal.
In their first phone talks since the war began in February, the two sides discussed Seoul’s humanitarian aid and Ukraine’s post-war recovery plans, Yonhap News Agency reported quoting South Korea’s PMO.
Han said South Korea has so far provided US$100 million worth of assistance and will remain in solidarity with Ukraine.
Earlier this month, the Seoul government shipped power generators, vaccines and medical supplies to Ukraine to help people cope with severe cold weather during the winter.
Shmyhal gave thanks for Seoul’s support and said his government wants South Korea to take part in Ukraine’s post-war recovery efforts, and Han expressed hope for the reconstruction plan, according to his office.
