During his visit, Poroshenko will speak at a plenary session of the World Humanitarian Summit, as well as take part in a round table discussion focusing on the role of political leaders in prevention and de-escalation of conflicts.

“Poroshenko is also scheduled to hold meetings with heads of states and governments participating in the summit,” the press-service reports.

Held under the auspices of the UN, the World Humanitarian Summit in Turkey, which took 3 years to prepare, will be the first event of its kind. Ways of resolving humanitarian problems, including those caused by all kinds of conflicts, are expected to be discussed at the summit.
