The issue of Crimea remains a top-priority in international talks, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has said.
"We had each phone talk and each meeting with the issue of Crimea being a top-priority. Each resolution of the U.S. Congress, each resolution of the European Union Council and our position have stressed the necessity of stopping aggression, terminating annexation of Crimea and returning it to Ukraine," Poroshenko told reporters at an airfield in Chuhuyiv, the Kharkiv region, on Saturday.
The president expressed confidence that diplomatic efforts will finally give the result.
Poroshenko also said that Ukraine is raising the issue of urgent withdrawal of Russian army from the territory of Kherson region (close to the administrative border with Crimea).
Crimea seceded from Ukraine and was annexed by Russia in March, following a local referendum on region's status. Crimea's unification with Russia, however was not recognized by Kyiv and the West
