KIEV, September 3 (Itar-Tass) - About 400 citizens of Ukraine are currently staying in Syria at the moment for various reasons. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara stated on the ICTV channel on Monday evening a total of more than 700 Ukrainians had been evacuated from the country during the conflict.
The minister said that Kiev would support the resolutions that the UN would adopt on the conflict in Syria. “To date, there is no other mechanism than the UN Security Council. Only it can make decisions on any sanctions, including military sanctions. Ukraine as a responsible member of the United Nations, as always, will support the UN Charter and the organisation's activities in this regard,” Kozhara said.
The foreign minister emphasised that Kiev is concerned over the developments in Syria. In particular, Kozhara noted, such a conflict in relatively close proximity to the state borders of Ukraine occurs for the first time in more than 10 years. Besides, he added, “there is a lot of evidence that weapons of mass destruction have been used.”
According to the Ukrainian foreign minister, all international diplomatic, political and legal means should be used to resolve the situation.
