BRUSSELS, June 27. /TASS/. The agenda of Monday’s brief EU-Ukraine summit in Brussels has been limited because of preparations for the EU summit that will focus on the UK’s withdrawal from the organization, a diplomatic source in Brussels has told TASS.
"The meeting between Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and European Parliament President Martin Schulz that was to be held at the European Parliament residence has been transferred to the EU Council, the joint news conference has been cancelled," the source said.
He noted that, in addition to meeting with Schulz, on Monday Poroshenko will also hold a joint meeting with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, European Council President Donald Tusk and EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini. No news conferences of the European leaders and the Ukrainian president are planned due to their busy schedule ahead of the EU summit.
The issues discussed at the talks are the implementation of the Minsk agreements by all parties, prospects for visa-free travel and the EU’s assistance to Ukraine.
