President Petro Poroshenko, during his 30 March visit to the European People's Party summit in Malta, met with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

The presidential website said the two leaders, inter alia, discussed the statements of the vice-premier of Hungary Zsolt Šemien to create autonomies of the Hungarian minorities in the neighboring countries.

In turn, Orban assured that Hungary supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

The parties discussed the issue of expanding cooperation of Ukraine with the Visegrad Group in the course of the presidency of Hungary in the Group that will begin on July 1, 2017.

Poroshenko and Orban spoke about Russian aggression in Donbas, including the preservation of the sanctions against the Russian Federation before the implementation of the Minsk agreements and the complete restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Poroshenko invited Orban to visit Ukraine.

The previous meeting between Poroshenko and Orban took place in October 2016.
