Volodymyr Groysman visited the U.S. on June 14-17
Vice-President Joe Biden invited Ukraine's Prime-Minister Volodymyr Groysman to visit the United States, on June 14-17, in order to discuss further steps for developing mutual relations.
At the 21 June conference in Kyiv, the PM said that the Ukrainian delegation held 30 meetings in the U.S. which were quite successful.
"I want to say the main thing I felt is that (the U.S. officials) are resuming their trust in Ukraine indeed. They have positively reacted towards the Ukrainian government change, new prosecutor-general appointment, and the beginning of judicial reforms. And, subsequently, we have huge support from the U.S. in all spheres including security sphere", Groysman declared.
Volodymyr Groisman also announced that the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry may visit Kyiv in July.
"We discussed the U.S. Secretary of State Kerry's visit to Ukraine. I think this visit will take place in July. We are expecting this visit", Groysman said.
The PM believes the relations between both countries will remain strategically essential whatever the outcome of the presidential elections.
"If values don't change, then I think the Ukraine-U.S. ties will be strategically important, valuable and successful, whatever choice Americans make", Groysman stated.
