President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with Federal Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel.
The parties discussed preparations to the meeting in the Normandy format that will take place on October 2 in Paris.
The Chancellor noted that the situation in Ukraine had an important significance for the global security. In this context, according to her, one should clearly distinguish between the security situation in Ukraine and Syria.
Petro Poroshenko and Angela Merkel once again agreed that pseudo-elections in the occupied territories would disrupt the Minsk process.
The parties also discussed the state of preparation for the launch of DCFTA between Ukraine and the European Union on January 1, 2016 and the prospects of the EU’s introduction of visa-free regime for Ukraine.
