The Cabinet of Ministers, Ukraine's government, has appointed Emine Dzheppar as First Deputy Foreign Minister.
"The Cabinet of Ministers has appointed Dzheppar, Emine Aiyarivna, First Deputy Foreign Minister," MP from the European Solidarity faction Oleksiy Honcharenko wrote on Telegram during a government meeting on Wednesday.
In turn, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba reported on the areas of responsibility of the newly appointed deputy foreign minister.
"The government has just appointed Emine Dzheppar to the post of first deputy foreign minister. The team has been replenished with a strong player. Emine will supervise the following areas: public diplomacy; international organizations; state protocol; Crimea," Kuleba wrote on Facebook.
"But first deputy is, of course, about much more things, and it is the diplomatic life that will pose additional tasks. I reasonably expect drive, consistency, and results in all directions," he added.
Earlier, President Volodymyr Zelensky proposed appointing Dzheppar to the post of first deputy foreign minister. He said that representatives of the Crimean Tatars should be represented at the highest diplomatic level.
