Address by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, December 10, 2023

“The peoples of Ukraine and Argentina above all value freedom, their identity, and strive to live with dignity,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

I wish you health, fellow Ukrainians!

Today was full of meetings and negotiations in Argentina. Furthermore, other Latin American countries have heard Ukraine’s voice here today.

I represented Ukraine at the inauguration of the new President of Argentina. I also held my first talks with Javier.

Today, on the squares and streets here, many people chanted the word “freedom” – libertad – and this is what unites us – Ukraine and Argentina, our peoples who value freedom, their identity and strive to live with dignity above all else. Javier wants strength for his country, and I felt that he wants honesty in international relations. I thanked him for supporting Ukraine and invited to work with us to restore peace. We discussed bilateral cooperation between our countries, which could contribute to economic strength and jobs for our people. It was a good, cordial meeting. I genuinely wish Argentina sound decision-making and sustained growth: may poverty decrease and strength increase. May freedom continually flourish.

Here, in Buenos Aires, I also held talks with three other leaders from the region: Paraguay, Uruguay, and Ecuador. We discussed our international work and cooperation with them.

On the sidelines of the inauguration, I spoke with Hungarian Prime Minister Orbán. It was a highly straightforward conversation, focused on our European affairs.
