Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko plans to visit New York in September and take part at the session of the United Nations General Assembly. Ukrainian Ambassador to the US Valery Chaly claimed this during the press club meeting of the heads of the foreign diplomatic institutions of Ukraine, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
Bilateral meeting of Poroshenko with American President Donald Trump is not yet in plans.
The diplomat added that the speech of Poroshenko is provided at the United Nations General Assembly, the number of bilateral meetings, in particular with investors, business and diaspora.
Yet, answering the question on the possible meeting of the presidents of Ukraine and the USA, Chaly said: ‘Such a meeting isn’t planned yet but one way or another there has to be the verification of schedule… think that a full-hour meeting won’t be held.’
In this vein, he noted that the Ukrainian Diplomatic Mission works on the meeting of the heads of the US Department of State and Ukrainian MFA.
As it was reported earlier, the UN Secretary-General claimed that would make every effort to restore peace in Ukraine.
