Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko will attend the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul on Monday. Poroshenko is on the working visit to Turkey this week, the presidential press service reports.
The politician will meet his counterparts from various countries who gathered to participate in the Summit.
The event is the first one of such kind ever held under the aegis of the UN.
The Summit has three main goals: to re-inspire and reinvigorate a commitment to humanity and to the universality of humanitarian principles, to initiate a set of concrete actions and commitments aimed at enabling countries and communities to better prepare for and respond to crises, and be resilient to shocks; finally, to share best practices which can help save lives around the world, put affected people at the center of humanitarian action, and alleviate suffering.
