Ukrainian PM's Israel visit set for 14 May – source

The prime minister will spend several days there.

Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, who had planned a visit to Israel in December 2016 but had it cancelled, will go there on 14 May, the Israeli news website IzRus has reported quoting sources in the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

On 14-16 May, he will meet Israel's top politicians, including Benjamin Netanyahu.

Groysman's visit to Israel, scheduled for 27-28 December, was cancelled after Ukraine supported the UN Security Council resolution demanding that Israel immediately cease all settlement activities in Palestinian territories. Israel interpreted it as an unfriendly act and refused to accept the Ukrainian prime minister.
