​Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin has announced the meeting between Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and U.S. President Barack Obama is to be held on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting.

'I believe, a brief meeting will certainly take place,' Klimkin said, according to Unian.

The foreign minister recalled that Obama had earlier devoted special attention to Ukrainian issue at the G20 summit in China.

According to Klimkin, Poroshenko will address the UN General Assembly.

The minister has also noted that two meetings of the UN Security Council will be held.

The 71st session of the UN General Assembly will launch at the organization's Headquarters in New York September 13.
