President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko will raise the issue of Russia's aggression and oppression of the Crimean Tatars in Crimea at the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, diplomat Volodymyr Khandogiy told in a televised interview.

“The Ukrainian issue will not be considered separately, as the summit is to address the issues of global nature. But our delegates, including President, will draw attention to the Crimean Tatars’ problem, as well as the situation caused by the Russian aggression against our country and need to settle it,”  Khandogiy said.

According to him, Poroshenko will hold bilateral talks with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“The issue of Ukraine will be sounded for sure at the bilateral meetings,” the diplomat said.

It was reported earlier that the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit will be held in Istanbul on May 23- 24. During the two-day summit, a wide range of current issues will be discussed, including the role of policy in preventing and resolving conflicts, protection against global threats, common development, improvement of living standards of people, investing in human capital, gender equality, as well as issues of climate change and disaster management.
