KIEV, March 23. /TASS/. A meeting of Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and US President Donald Trump, that Ukraine earlier said was due in February, "was not postponed, but is being prepared," the foreign minister told Liga online edition.
"No, it (the meeting) was not postponed. It simply must have a subject matter and the logic of arrangements. Besides, the American administration is still at the stage of formation on certain issues. That is why, the meeting must be thoroughly prepared," Pavel Klimkin said.
He said the Ukrainian president had already had two telephone conversations with the US president, the first one after Donald Trump had won the election and another one after he had been inaugurated. Klimkin said the second call was an in-depth conversation. "Trump was prepared, he was not reading out some theses prepared for him by aides. It was a real conversation," the foreign minister said.
Earlier, the press service of the Ukrainian Embassy to the US gave the tentative dates for a meeting of the two presidents as February 21-23.
