MOSCOW, May 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov has called on the United Nations Secretariat to be unbiased and objective in their assessments of the situation in Ukraine.
On Tuesday, Gatilov met with United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman, who is currently on a working visit to Moscow, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported.
Gatilov and Feltman “exchanged views on a number of issues of the international agenda, including the development of the political crisis in Ukraine,” the ministry said. “Gatilov called on the United Nations Secretariat to be maximally unbiased and objective in the assessment of the situation. The sides agreed that the crisis could be deescalated only through a really comprehensive intra-Ukrainian dialogue.”
“The sides also exchanged views on the prospects for the resumption of intra-Syria talks within the framework of the Geneva international conference, as well as on the progress of the inter-community dialogue in Cyprus,” the ministry noted.
