Apple met with Ukraine's foreign minister at the World Economic Forum in Davos, in what appears to be the first public meeting after Apple's controversial decision to display Crimea as Russian territory on two of its most popular apps.




Ukraine's foreign minister Vadym Prystaiko tweeted a picture of himself with Apple executive Lisa Jackson, and said some "outstanding issues" of a political nature were up for discussion.




In November 2019, Apple started to display Crimea as Russian territory on its Maps and Weather apps from inside Russia a move slammed by Prystaiko and other critics.




Business Insider has approached Apple for comment and clarification about the way it plans to display Crimea on its Apple Maps and Weather apps when viewed from Russia.
