VIENNA, January 23, 4:22 /ITAR-TASS/. Swiss Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter, who is current Chairperson-in-Office of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), has expressed concern over the situation in Ukraine and called on all parties to refrain from violence and begin a peaceful dialogue.
“I urge all sides to refrain from violence and to seek to stabilize the situation through dialogue involving all parties,” Burkhalter said on Wednesday. “I am deeply concerned about the reported casualties and my thoughts are with the families of the dead and injured.”
He offered Switzerland’s help, as the OSCE chair, in finding a peaceful political way out of the crisis.
“The OSCE has the necessary tools and the mechanisms to act as an impartial broker in such situations, and it is ready to support the Ukrainian authorities in order to lower tensions and prevent further escalation,” he said.
