OTTAWA (QHA) -

Canada intends to promote economic growth and the rule of law in Ukraine, the media reported referring to Canadian Defense Minister Harjit Singh Sajjan.

“Canada's support for Ukraine is unwavering. We will continue to promote economic stabilization and growth, as well as promote democracy, human rights and the rule of law," Sajjan assured.

He clarified that Canada was the first western country to recognize Ukraine's independence, and will continue to support its important ally and friend.
Further assistance to Ukraine is supported by all parties of the Federal Parliament of Canada.

Earlier, QHA reported that in mid-February, Ukraine and Canada adopted an agreement on a free trade zone that lifted trade restrictions and completely abolished duties on major groups of goods.
