"No, I don't plan. Why?" Klimkin told an UNIAN correspondent, answering a question whether he plans to go to Brussels with Zelensky as part of the president's first foreign visit.

At the same time, the minister said the Foreign Ministry was engaged in preparations for the visit. "We are preparing all this," Klimkin said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will visit Brussels next week.

The Ukrainian president will inform partners in the European Union and NATO about the security situation in the east of Ukraine, discuss ways to intensify international efforts to end the war in Donbas, and will exchange views with leaders of EU and NATO institutions on further key reforms in Ukraine.
