NEW YORK, January 19. /TASS/. Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko hopes to meet US President-elect Donald Trump in February and believes the incoming administration will continue its policy of Ukraine’s support, he said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.
"Look, first of all, we are enjoying the strong bipartisan support" in the US, Poroshenko said at the World Economic Forum in Davos. "I am absolutely sure that the continuation of our cooperation with the United States will be very effective."
Poroshenko said that he was planning to visit Washington next month and that he hoped to meet with Donald Trump. Ukraine’s president made a phone call to Trump in the days after his win in the presidential election in November.
"That would be my great pleasure and I think that would be an effective meeting based on my impression of the phone conversation," he said.
Poroshenko noted that he respects the choice of voters in Western democratic countries and "is ready to work with any leaders." He also warned against lifting anti-Russian sanctions as it "would be dangerous for their (Western countries) future security."
Earlier, Poroshenko said that in the phone conversation with the US president-elect they had agreed their meeting would be held right after Trump’s inauguration on January 20. Nonetheless, the US incoming administration has not confirmed this information yet.
