The sides discussed the status of preparation of Ukraine - EU summit, which will take place on November 24 in Brussels.
EU leaders welcomed the decision of the Council to begin the inter-institutional negotiations on visa-free regime for Ukrainian citizens at the ambassadorial level. "This decision is a significant political achievement in the process of visa liberalization," Donald Tusk said. President of the European Council expressed hope that EU institutions will reach agreement on a mechanism of suspension of visa-free regime in the near future, paving the way for the final visa abolition for Ukrainians.
Poroshenko and Tusk also coordinated approach to complete the ratification process of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU by Netherlands.
