KIEV, January 29. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden talked by telephone to discuss cooperation between Ukraine and the United States in political, financial and defence spheres, Ukraine’s presidential press service said on Thursday.
"The Ukrainian president thanked the United States for its decision to provide $2 billion in loan guarantees and expressed his conviction that this macro-financial aid will allow Ukraine to stabilise the macroeconomic situation and defuse tension in financial markets," the press service said in a statement.
Poroshenko and Biden also discussed the possibility of further U.S. technical assistance for Ukraine, the situation in Ukraine’s southeast and ways to reach a peaceful settlement, it said, adding that the two men agreed to meet on the sidelines of the Munich security conference, due to take place on February 6-8, and discussed preparations for the bilateral meeting.
