President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko will pay a working visit to the United States of America on September 18-21 to attend the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly. This was reported by the official online agency of the head of state.
"Petro Poroshenko will deliver a speech during the general debate of the UN General Assembly, take part in the UN Security Council summit on peacemaking, high-level events on UN reforms and countering the use of the Internet for terrorist purposes," the report says.
It is noted that on the margins of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly Poroshenko will hold a number of bilateral meetings with world leaders, including the US President.
Poroshenko will traditionally meet with the leaders of the Ukrainian community of the United States, representatives of Crimean Tatar organizations and representatives of leading American political and business circles.
As it was reported earlier the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko claimed that the UN peacekeeping mission in Donbas will aim to provide the lasting peace and not to freeze the Russian occupation.
The Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed that the presence of the UN peacekeepers in Donbas will benefit the resolution of the conflict in the East of Ukraine and instructed the Russian Foreign Ministry to introduce the proper resolution to the UN Security Council.
The representative of Ukraine at the Trilateral Contact Group on Donbas in Minsk and the First Vice Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Iryna Gerashchenko claimed at Facebook that it is impossible to talk about the UN Peacekeepers only at the demarcation line.
‘The peacekeepers should be present at the whole territory that is occupied by Russian to monitor the security situation and demilitarization, their mandate should end at the Ukrainian-Russian border’, Gerashchenko said.
According to the mass media of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), the leader of the militants Olexandr Zakharchenko claimed about the necessity to discuss the offer of Putin. ‘In any case, we are ready to discuss the pointed initiative and insist that without approval from the DPR and LNR side any changes of the conflict settlement are impossible’, he thinks.
The permanent representative of Ukraine in the UN Volodymyr Elchenko claimed that the UN peacekeeping mission should be placed at the Russian-Ukrainian border and the participation of Russian representatives in it is impossible.
Later Russia sent the resolution project on the deployment of the UN peacekeepers at the contact line in Donbas to the Chairman of the UN Security Council Tekeda Alemu and the Secretary General of the UN Antonio Guterres.
