Presidents of Croatia and Ukraine meet in New York

Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic has met with her Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko on the margins of the 71st United Nations General Assembly session in New York, Poroshenko's office said in a press release on Wednesday.

The Croatian president said that her country was a friend and partner to Ukraine and that Croatia's experience with post-war recovery and reintegration of temporarily occupied territories could be useful to Ukraine.

Poroshenko expressed hope that the new government in Zagreb would continue to support Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty.

The two heads of state also discussed regional cooperation and agreed to intensify economic cooperation.

Poroshenko expressed interest in joining the Adriatic-Baltic-Black Sea initiative and reiterated his invitation to Grabar-Kitarovic to visit Ukraine.
