"Today we have coordinated steps to prepare for the conference on Ukraine's recovery to be held in Tokyo on February 19 this year. We are working to ensure that Japanese companies become important participants in Ukraine's recovery following the conference," the Ukrainian minister said.

Japan stated that they would like to hear specific needs for support for recovery and reconstruction in Ukraine at the conference.

According to Kuleba, the ministers also discussed cooperation within the IAEA to ensure the safety of nuclear facilities in Ukraine.

Aid from Japan

Today, January 7, it was reported that Japanese Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa arrived in Kyiv. In Ukraine, she met with her Ukrainian counterpart, Dmytro Kuleba, and visited Bucha and Irpin.

During a briefing with Kuleba, the minister said that Japan has allocated $37 million for drone detection systems for Ukraine. The money will be transferred to the NATO trust fund.

As a reminder, at the end of December, the state budget of our country received about $950 million from Japan as part of World Bank projects for recovery and social protection.
