Tillerson will meet with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and young reformers from government and civil society on July 9 in Kiev, and will “reaffirm America’s commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the State Department said. It will be Tillerson’s first official visit to Kiev.

Tillerson will then travel to Istanbul, Turkey to meet with senior Turkish officials July 9-10, the State Department said.
