President Petro Poroshenko has called on Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic to facilitate completion of the drafting of a European Union mechanism for suspending visa-free travels for third countries and completion of the ratification of the association agreement between Ukraine and the European Union. The Ukrainian presidential press service announced this in a statement after a meeting between Poroshenko and Plenkovic, Ukrainian News Agency reports. "Petro Poroshenko called on the head of the Croatian government to actively facilitate within the European Union completion of the work on a mechanism for suspending visa-free regimes, which would pave the way for abolition of visas for Ukraine, as well as completion of the ratification of the Ukraine-EU association agreement," the statement said. During the meeting with Poroshenko, Plenkovic said that a working group on supporting Ukraine, which includes a number of high-ranking officials from Croatian ministries, has been set up on his instructions. In addition, Poroshenko and Plenkovic discussed the issue of broadening the trade and economic cooperation between Ukraine and Croatia. As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Croatia intends to provide consultative assistance to Ukraine on reintegration of the occupied territories of Donbas and Russia-annexed Crimea.
