Yanukovych wants to visit United States in April

President Viktor Yanukovych of Ukraine is intending to pay an official visit to the United States in April 2010.

Foreign Minister Kostiantyn Hryschenko announced this during the Big Politics political talk show on the Inter television channel on Friday evening.

"We are planning the closest visit for mid April or even sooner," said the Ukrainian foreign minister.

Foreign Minister Hryschenko voiced hope the visit won't be the last visit of President Yanukovych to the United States.

Hryschenko said work was underway on the agenda of Yanukovych's visit to the United States.

As Ukrainian News earlier reported, Yanukovych said he wanted to meet with US President Barack Obama.

The United States expects the Ukrainian leadership to take part in the Global Nuclear Security Summit in Washington on April 12-13.

On February 12, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with Ambassador of the United States in Ukraine John F. Tefft. During the meeting J. Tefft passed a letter from US President Barack Obama to Ukraine's Head of State with an invitation to take part in the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington on April 12-13.
