"On the way to Argentina, I met with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Cape Verde. This meeting became the first in the history of bilateral relations between our countries," he announced.

According to the president, Cape Verde's voice is a voice of democracy that helps us on the UN stage, supporting resolutions that are crucial for Ukraine.

"I thank Prime Minister Jose Ulisses Correia e Silva for supporting the humanitarian initiative Grain from Ukraine and invite you to join the implementation of the Ukrainian formula for peace," he added.

Additionally, Zelenskyy informed Correia e Silva about Russia's unsuccessful attempts to obstruct civilian navigation in the Black Sea, noting that after the restart of the alternative "grain corridor," more than 7 million tons of grain have already been transported.
