Earlier Mike Pompeo said that the State Department is working on preparing a new meeting between US President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Pompeo announced this in an interview with the journalist ABC, which was published by the press service of the State Department.

“We work on many things with them (the Ukrainian leadership - ed.). When the time comes - they are both busy people - we will find a suitable opportunity for him (Zelensky - ed.) And the president (Trump - ed.) To meet. Do you remember that they met in New York in January or, sorry, in September. I’m sure they will meet again somewhere,” - Pompeo stated.

The Secretary of State does not exclude that Trump and Zelensky can once again meet both in Washington, and in Kyiv, or in any other place.
