President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and US President-elect Donald Trump have agreed to meet, Poroshenko said in an interview with Bloomberg, according to one of the accounts of the Presidential Administration on Twitter.

"I was among the first world leaders, whom @realDonaldTrump called the after elections. We have agreed to meet," the post reads.

“We had quite a promising conversation,” Poroshenko said Tuesday in an interview with Bloomberg Television at the World Economic Forum in Davos. “We agreed on the date of my visit to Washington D.C. immediately after the inauguration and the agenda of our negotiations will be quite big.”

Late last year, deputy head of the Presidential Administration, Kostyantyn Yeliseyev said that the meeting between the presidents of Ukraine and the US Poroshenko and Donald Trump may be held in February 2017.

In the US presidential election on November 8, 2016, the Republican candidate Donald Trump garnered the support of 30 states, against 20 of his rival Hillary Clinton.

Poroshenko talked with Trump on the phone on November 15, 2016.
