I will have a meeting with President Obama, and I asked for a meeting with both U.S. presidential candidates – one of the candidates has already agreed, it was Hillary Clinton, and we look forward to the confirmation from Mr. Trump," Poroshenko said at the annual meeting of Yalta European Strategy (YES) in Kyiv.
