KIEV, September 25. /TASS/. Ukraine’s presidential administration is working on organizing a full format meeting of President Pyotr Poroshenko with US leader Barack Obama during the UN General Assembly session, a representative of the administration has said.
"It’s clear that there is a chance for a brief meeting with the US president and it will be probably fulfilled. We hope so," Yuri Ruban told the Channel 5.
"We would like this meeting to be not just a protocol or a demonstrative one, we would like it to be more substantive as we have a big package of issues that are now locked at the decision of the US president," he said.
Ruban confirmed the plans for Poroshenko’s meeting with US Vice President Joe Biden. The Ukrainian leader is expected to hold around 10 bilateral meetings, including with UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Polish President Andrzej Duda and European Council President Donald Tusk.
Poroshenko will take part in the plenary debates at the 70th UN General Assembly session on September 29. He will also make a speech at a Sustainable Development Summit at the UN on September 27.
The White House confirmed on Thursday that Russian President Vladimir Putin and Obama have a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly's jubilee session upon a request from the Russian side.
