The President of Ukraine has held a meeting with President of the Bundestag Norbert Lammert. The parties have noted the intensification of dialogue between Ukraine and Germany.
"It is symbolic that my visit is taking place on the eve of ratification of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU by the German Parliament," President Petro Poroshenko said.
The President of the Bundestag has mentioned the symbolism and importance of signing the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU that will be held in the Bundestag on March 26.
The parties have emphasized the need for intensifying cooperation between the parliaments of the two countries.
Petro Poroshenko and Norbert Lammert have discussed financial and economic cooperation between Ukraine and Germany, as well as the preparation to the Eastern Partnership Summit in Riga, at which Ukraine is expecting the decision on the introduction of visa-free regime with the EU for the Ukrainian citizens.
The parties have called the actions of two German parliamentarians, who had visited the occupied territories of Donbas in violation of rules of the international law crossing the border in the uncontrolled area of the Ukrainian-Russian frontier, inadmissible. These actions have been used by Russian propaganda.
