According to Geoffrey Pyatt, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko assured the U.S. government that Ukraine will soon assign the new independent and professional Prosecutor General (Interfax-Ukraine).
The Ambassador stressed that the USA expect an end to the period of political uncertainty in Ukraine and consensus on the issues of candidacy of the new Prosecutor General and the line-up of the government, as well as continuing with reforms in Ukraine and fulfilling its commitments before the International Monetary Fund.
The official added that Washington is not ready to supply guarantees and financial aid to Ukraine until the crisis is resolved and reforms are being implemented in the country.
According to the U.S. Ambassador, the White House is “interested in Ukraine’s success and ready to continue the course of reforms, helping Ukraine to defend itself against the Russian aggressor”. But for that to happen, Ukraine needs unity of all political leaders, President, Premier and Parliamentary Speaker, Pyatt said.
As 112 International reported, President Petro Poroshenko is on working visit to the USA. The Ukrainian leader met U.S. top officials, in particular President Barack Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden; UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and Dutch Premier Mark Rutte. During the visit, Poroshenko participated in the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C., where he came on the invitation of the U.S. leader.
