According to Poroshenko's press service, they discussed cooperation between the EU and Ukraine, the Eastern Partnership summit and cooperation within the European People's Party.

He recalled that ahead of the summit, the European Parliament had passed an absolutely clear resolution in support of Ukraine.

"I am extremely grateful to President Tusk for the absolutely clear, solid and consistent position of support for Ukraine’s European aspirations and sanctions against Russia as a consequence of Russia's aggression against Ukraine."
