The president also noted that Ukraine was able to demonstrate significant progress in reforming the security and defense sector, and the development of its armed forces at short notice. During the meeting, the president paid considerable attention to the fulfillment of the Minsk accords by Ukraine aspiring to "soonest cease-fire and return of peace in the Donbas, beginning of the political process and return of Ukrainian sovereignty over the occupied territories."

At the same time Poroshenko noted that Moscow had not yet shown any willingness to comply fully with the Minsk agreements and expressed the hope that the European Council, which session would be held Dec. 17-18, would extend sanctions against the Russian Federation.
