Ukraine should have the right to apply for European Union membership, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski said at a joint press conference with his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko in Kyiv on Wednesday, an UNIAN correspondent reported.

The Polish president claims that his current visit to Ukraine is an opportunity to reaffirm the strong support of an independent Ukraine, which has the right to defend its territorial integrity.

"I also see it as an opportunity to emphasize Poland's strong support of Ukraine's European aspirations. Poland has been and will be of the opinion that Ukraine should have the right to apply for membership of the European Union and of other structures of the Western world if it wants," Komorowski said.
