Romania’s President Klaus Iohannis will welcome at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace on Thursday Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, as part of Poroshenko’s official visit to Bucharest.
According to President Iohannis’ agenda, the two heads of state will hold a joint press conference. Poroshenko’s schedule also includes a lunch with Romanian Prime Minister Dacian Ciolos.
On March 17, 2015, Klaus Iohannis paid an official visit to Kiev where he voiced his firm support for Ukraine’s getting closer to the European Union.
Iohannis announced back then that he agreed with Poroshenko on the two countries enhancing the visibility of the Romanian communities in Ukraine and the Ukrainian communities in Romania.
The last meeting between the two presidents took place in February, on the side-lines of the Munich International Security Conference. On that occasion, Klaus Iohannis reiterated support for the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine and underscored the importance of the full implementation of the Minsk Accords for solving the crisis.
