23:55, 12 July 2018

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko met his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump.

Earlier the sources reported that all Trump's bilateral meetings, including the one with the Ukrainian President, were canceled due to a crisis meeting among NATO  members, where the US president said he was satisfied by member countries' commitment to increase defense expenditures.

The sources in Administration of President of Ukraine report that the meeting did take place, though there was no press - due to the changes in the schedule. According to the sources, Trump and Poroshenko talked for about 20 minutes and discussed a lot of issues - specifically, the leaders of two countries discussed cooperation in the area of defense and Russian project Nord Stream II, among others.
