Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said on Friday he hoped to secure a "special status" with the United States as a non-NATO ally during his visit next week to Washington.

"In a few days I go to the United States where we have a very important meeting with the US Congress (and) the US president... We are also hoping in the very near future for a special status of a non-NATO member ally," Poroshenko, speaking in English, told an international business forum in Kiev.
