KIEV, September 28. /TASS/. The situation in Ukraine is important for global security, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday at a meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in New York where events on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly are currently underway, the Ukrainian presidential press service said in a statement.
"The federal chancellor noted that the situation in Ukraine is important for global security. In that context, according to her, it is necessary to clearly distinguish between security in Ukraine and in Syria," the statement said.
The interlocutors discussed preparation for a meeting in the Normandy format in Paris due October 2.
At the meeting, Merkel and Poroshenko separately discussed "the state of preparation for a deep and comprehensive free trade zone between Ukraine and the European Union from January 1, 2016, as well as prospects of EU introducing a visa free regime for Ukrainian nationals."
