President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko held on the sidelines of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly in new York meeting with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

During the meeting, Erdogan promised Poroshenko that Ankara will continue to provide support to Kiev “in the issue of restoration of sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic, reported on the website of the Ukrainian leader.

Erdogan assured the Ukrainian President that the restoration of dialogue with Moscow will not affect the position of the Turkish authorities “not to recognize the annexation of the Crimea and condemning violations of the rights of Crimean Tatars”.

In addition, the leaders of Ukraine and Turkey discussed the issues of trade, investment and agreed on the meeting of the working group on energy. Poroshenko also invited Turkish companies to participate in privatization of Ukrainian enterprises.

Again Crimea became a Russian region on the basis of a referendum held in March 2014. For reunification with Russia voted more than 95% of the inhabitants of the Peninsula. In Kiev refused to recognize the results of the plebiscite, and I think the Peninsula is occupied Ukrainian territory.
