WARSAW, Poland (AP) -- Poland's president says he wants Ukraine to attend next year's NATO summit in Warsaw that will focus on security for the region anxious over a resurgent Russia.
On a visit to Kiev Tuesday, Andrzej Duda said he will make efforts to allow Ukraine, which is not a NATO member, to attend the key defense meeting in July.
He says he believes the European Union should continue sanctions against Moscow over its actions in eastern Ukraine. The sanctions are to expire Dec. 31, but Duda says Moscow has not met conditions for them to be lifted.
Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko says Poland, a supporter of Ukraine's economic and political reforms, will open a 4 billion zlotys ($1 billion) credit line for Ukraine.
