President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko counts on the help of G-7 countries in the issue of the return of Crimea under the sovereignty of Ukraine, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
"I consider the platform of the Big Seven (G7) as the platform that will help our efforts, the efforts of international group of friends to end the occupation of the Crimea," Poroshenko said at a joint news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Toronto.
Poroshenko noted that Ukraine is counting on Canada during its presidency in the G7 (since 2018). "Thanks to the chairmanship of G7, Canada can play an even more important role in ensuring peace and stability in Ukraine and Europe," Poroshenko said.
Earlier we reported that in a joint statement that followed the meeting between the Prime Minister of Canada and the President of Ukraine, the former affirmed that Canada would maintain pressure on Russia until its full implementation of the Minsk agreements.
“Canada is committed to maintaining pressure on Russia to respect Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and to implement fully its Minsk commitments, including through ongoing sanctions,” the statement says.
