Lisa Jackson, Apple’s VP of environment, policy and social initiatives, met with Ukraine’s foreign minister at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. This looks to be their first meeting after the recent controversy in which Apple displayed the annexed Crimea as Russian territory in two of its apps.

Vadym Prystaiko previously told Apple that it should stay out of politics, and stick to “high-tech and entertainment.”

President Donald Trump and Apple CEO Tim Cook are taking their awkward bromance to Davos.

Cook is reportedly slated to attend breakfast with Trump this Wednesday at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Trump, who used his opening speech at the international gathering to slam climate change activists, also will be briefed by IBM CEO Ginni Rometty during the breakfast meeting.
