In a roundtable discussion with European Union (EU) ministers on Sept. 4, Latvian Transportation Minister Jānis Vītenbergs said that inadequate transportation infrastructure between his country and Ukraine has delayed aid deliveries, the news outlet Delfi reported.
Vītenbergs said that Latvia's roads, railways, ports, and airports are all in need of improvements and EU funding.
"We are negotiating a common position with like-minded countries from our region and the EU in order to obtain additional funds for projects and investments," the minister said.
At the meeting, the ministers signed a declaration on EU funding for "strategically important transportation projects."
