On September 22, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said President Petro Poroshenko might not take part in the political discussions at the UN General Assembly.
“This issue is not being discussed. We hoped that the president would speak at the General Assembly and take part in several major events,” Klimkin said.
The development of events demands the head of state should stay in the country. “Probably, there will be some changes in the agenda. But a decision will be made shortly,” he said.
The political discussion at the Assembly will begin on September 24. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is scheduled to speak on September 27.
