President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky insists on the importance of keeping the focus of the UN and the European Union on the issue of de-occupation of Crimea.

Zelensky made a corresponding statement during a meeting with High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, Ukrinform reports with reference to the President’s press service.

As noted, the President of Ukraine underscored that "it is crucial to keep the focus of the UN and the EU on the de-occupation of Crimea."

Creation of a negotiating platform on the de-occupation of the Crimean peninsula was also discussed at the meeting.

"For us, the key issue is to have a permanent platform which primarily raises humanitarian and human rights issues, the issues of Ukrainians in the temporarily occupied Crimea, the return of our occupied territories in general," Zelensky said.

In turn, the High Representative of the EU assured that the European Union would never recognize the occupation of Crimea.

On September 22, High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy - Vice President of the European Commission Josep Borrell makes the first official visit to Ukraine since assuming his position.
