UNITED NATIONS, September 25 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine is in favor of a peaceful settlement of the Syrian conflict, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said on Tuesday at the general debate of the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly.

The president added that “the successful implementation of the Russian-U.S. plan for the elimination of chemical weapons gives hope for the conflict’s localization and leaves a room for its political and diplomatic solution.”

“One of the most painful issues of the day is the civil conflict in Syria, which, unfortunately, is increasingly turning into a cross-border one and becoming a source of regional-scale threats,” said the Ukrainian head of state. According to the president, the combined action to address this issue must be based on humanistic values, deliberateness and mutual responsibility.

“Ukraine has held out a helping hand to the Syrian population by providing aid through the UN mechanisms. And today we call on the entire international community to join this humanitarian mission,” Yanukovich stressed. “It’s time to activate the formation of the broadest platform that would make it possible through multilateral negotiations to find a political solution to restore peace and stability in Syria.”
