KIEV, February 6. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko will discuss settlement in Donbas on Saturday during his visit to Munich and will meet officials of the European Union, United States and NATO military alliance, deputy chief of Ukraine’s presidential staff Valery Chaly said on Friday.
Poroshenko is to start his working day with a meeting of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, he said.
"We anticipate NATO’s announced clear-cut position, which we are ready to react to," Chaly said noting that it included "concrete ways of interaction and NATO’s trust funds for Ukraine."
Chaly said a tripartite meeting of Poroshenko, US Vice-President Joe Biden and German Chancellor Angela Merkel was planned.
The talks are expected to focus on results of Merkel’s visit to Moscow on Friday.
"The position of the three parties — Ukraine, France and Germany — has been formed and we are awaiting the reaction of the fourth participant in the ‘Normandy format’ [Russia — eds. TASS]," the Ukrainian official said.
Besides, Poroshenko is due to meet Lithuania’s President Dalia Grybauskaite and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, Chaly said.
