"We are working on the preparation to the visit of Ukraine's President Zelensky to the USA," he stated.

According to him, now the schedules of the Presidents are being agreed.

"Firstly, there are no conditions. President Trump confirmed Zelensky's invitation on this Thursday. Of course we want to make this session as useful as possible.
