ST.PETERSBURG, June 17. /TASS/. The further delay in fulfilling the Minsk peace accords is unacceptable, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.
There is no alternative to the Minsk deal, he said, adding that "there is also understanding that the further delay in implementing it is absolutely unacceptable," Peskov said.
Peskov stressed that "there is also understanding that the further delay in implementing it is absolutely unacceptable, as these Minsk agreements cannot turn into immortal writings, this is impossible."
The Kremlin spokesman also said that this common understanding is no doubt "a guarantee that the work will continue." "At the same time, there are some differences of course," he added.
Peskov noted that the participation of the United States in preparation of the Minsk Agreements would not have played a decisive role in the agreement’s implementation.
"I don’t think that this (US participation in preparation of Minsk-2) would have played a decisive role," Peskov said.
He added that the only thing that plays a decisive role now are "efforts of those who can exert influence on Kiev in terms of seriously treating fulfillment of its commitments on implementing the Minsk Agreements."
