Poroshenko, Trudeau coordinate positions on the eve of NATO, G7 meetings

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has held a phone conversation with Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau.

This is reported by the press service of the Head of State.

"Petro Poroshenko informed on the developments in Donbas and the ongoing violation of the Minsk agreements by Russia. The President of Ukraine expressed confidence that the leaders of NATO and G7 will deliver an appropriate assessment of the given situation, particularly in the issue of continuation of sanctions’ pressure on Moscow," the statement reads.

In turn, Prime Minister Trudeau assured that the G7 and NATO coalition is committed to support Ukraine.

The parties also discussed future intensification of bilateral relations. The leaders praised recent ratification of the Free Trade Agreement by the Canadian Senate that paves the way to its full application in the nearest future. Petro Poroshenko thanked Canada for its stance in the issue of development of defensive cooperation, the evidence of which is continuation of UNIFIER training mission and signature of the agreement on defensive cooperation.

Petro Poroshenko noted that the adoption of the EU’s decision as regards visa waiver for Ukrainians provides conditions for intensification of dialogue on visa liberalisation between Canada and Ukraine.

The parties coordinated the schedule of contacts at the highest level.
