"No one will dismiss me because there must be political culture. The new president will be allowed to choose those with whom he should work in such areas as foreign policy and defense. That is, of course, I will have to tender my resignation to the new president and I'll certainly do this. I have already said that I have my own plans, including political ones. This [resignation] is also in line with my plans," Klimkin told Ukrainian Pryamiy TV Channel, according to the Ukrainian news outlet Glavred.

At the same time, Klimkin did not specify what would happen if Zelensky did not accept his resignation.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukraine's President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky said a date for his inauguration would become known at a meeting in parliament on May 14.
