BRUSSELS, December 04. /ITAR-TASS/. German deputy of the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Helga Schmidt will leave for Kiev on Wednesday to take part in the OSCE meeting slated for December 5-6 and talks with the Ukrainian authorities and the opposition, spokeswoman to the EU foreign policy chief Maya Kosyanchich said.
Kosyanchich said Catherine Ashton didn't boycott the OSCE ministerial meeting. The EU foreign policy chief was not planning to go to Kiev because she had to chair a meeting between the Serbian and Kosovar leadership, the spokeswoman said.
She said the European Commission did not expect the Ukrainian delegation to arrive in Brussels. The date of the visit should be coordinated by diplomatic channels, she said.
Earlier, the European Commission sources told Itar-Tass that no meetings were planning to be held. The European Commission has no information on the possible date of the visit to Brussels by the Ukrainian delegation.
