The last time the two spoke was on September 7 during a phone conversation.
The Ukrainian president expressed concern about the growing number of visa denials to Ukrainians attempting to enter "Israel" under the visa-free system.
The UN General Assembly will meet in New York from September 19 to 23, with the annual General Debate taking place on September 26. The theme of this year's plenary will be "rebuilding trust and reigniting global solidarity."
The Biden administration warned in June that the Israeli occupation's handling of Ukrainian refugees fleeing war was rendering them more vulnerable to human trafficking.
In March, Israeli occupation minister Ayelet Shaked announced that there would be a limit to the number of non-Jewish Ukrainian refugees, explaining that "Israel" would temporarily host 20,000 Ukrainian citizens who were already in "Israel" before the war and would be hosting an additional 5,000, while Israelis hosting non-Jewish Ukrainians will have to pay a $3,000 fee to the government.
The 5,000 non-Ukrainian Jews will receive a three-month temporary visa - if the situation in Ukraine does not improve by then, they will be allowed to work.
