Russian Foreign Minister Serge Lavrov said he hopes his Ukrainian counterpart Pavlo Klimkin will promote constructive cooperation between the foreign ministries of Russia and Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said after a telephone conversation between the ministers on Friday.
“To continue a telephone conversation between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ukrainian counterpart Pavlo Klimkin had phone talks,” the Russian diplomatic agency stated.
“Russia noted the importance of soonest conflict deescalation, lowering tensions and ensuring security of all Ukrainian citizens, and the start of a broad all-Ukraine dialogue,” the ministry noted.
