UNITED NATIONS, March 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The UN Security Council on Wednesday will hold the eighth since the beginning of the month meeting on Ukraine. The permanent mission of Luxembourg that is presiding in the Security Council in March announced on Tuesday that the meeting was scheduled for 15:00, local time (23:00 MSK).
“The Security Council will hold an open meeting on Ukraine at 15:00. Reports will be made by Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations Jan Eliasson and Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Simonovic,” the mission said.
It has also became known that a plenary meeting of the UN General Assembly that had been initially planned for Thursday has been indefinitely postponed. “The General Assembly plenary meeting on the situation in Ukraine, scheduled for Thursday, March 20, has been postponed until further notice,” Afaf Konja, spokeswoman for the General Assembly president, said.
The Ukrainian permanent mission to the UN told Itar-Tass that the changes in the plans had been caused by the decision to call a Security Council meeting. It is so far unknown when the General Assembly session would take place.
Russia on March 15 vetoed a UN Security Council resolution that declared the Crimea independence referendum unlawful. After that reports came suggesting that Kiev together with its supporters was considering the adoption of a similar document through the General Assembly. UK Ambassador to the United Nations Mark Lyall Grant also did not rule out that new resolutions might be introduced for the UN Security Council’s consideration.
