The foreign Ministry of Ukraine responded to Tillerson’s words about the alternative to the Minsk format
Ukrainian diplomats commented on the words of U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson about the alternative to Minsk. Like, whatever the format – most importantly, to attain the objectives of Minsk.
This was stated by Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadim pristayko, writes UNIAN.
“He (Secretary of state USA Rex Tillerson – ed) said that whatever the format, we talked about that, too, whatever the format – most importantly, to attain the objectives of Minsk. Do not have the points to strike out, to just peace was achieved. That’s what he meant,” – said the first Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs.
“I don’t want to interpret what he said. He said only that it is not necessary to do it in this format. This, incidentally, gives us the opportunity to look wider. We also see, as all that the Minsk format is the right mechanism, but really his options are limited, and everybody understands that,” added Pristayko.
Tillerson assured that sanctions against Russia will remain in force
Earlier, U.S. Secretary of state Tillerson said that does not rule out that Ukraine and Russia can find ways of resolving the situation around Donbass by entering into new transactions, which may differ from the Minsk agreements.
