MOSCOW, June 15. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry discussed the crisis in Ukraine in a phone call on Monday as well as developments in the Middle East and North Africa and prospects for resolving Iran’s nuclear problem, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Speaking about Ukraine, the two foreign ministers noted the necessity for all sides to implement ceasefire agreements signed in Minsk, Belarus, in February and supported plans to convene a meeting between representatives of working subgroups formed as part of the Contact Group on the Ukraine crisis, the ministry said, adding that the meeting was expected "to establish sustainable direct dialogue between Kiev and Donetsk and Luhansk".
