U.S. President Donald Trump will meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for the first time during the United Nations General Assembly in New York on September 25.
The two will discuss ending the war in Donbas, energy cooperation, trade, as well as U.S. concerns over Chinese attempts to "loot Ukraine's intellectual property,'" a senior White House administration official said on September 20, without giving any detail, according to RFE/RL's Ukrainian bureau.
Trump will call on "all parties to adhere" to their obligations under the Minsk accords, the senior administration official added.
