MINSK, October 9. /TASS/. All CIS countries welcome the role played by the Minsk accords over Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after a meeting of the CIS foreign ministers on Thursday.
“The Ukrainian situation was not on the agenda today, but on the sidelines we have touched upon this topic, of course, and also upon the events in the Middle East in connection with the upsurge in terrorist activities there,” Lavrov said.
“As far as Ukraine is concerned, everybody hails the role played by the Minsk accords of September 5 and 19 and the continuing process within the contact group on the basis of the Minsk accords to ensure a lasting ceasefire, disengagement of the warring factions, and pullout of heavy armaments to create pre-requisites for the political process, which is most important today."
