GENEVA, March 19, /ITAR-TASS/. Swiss President Didier Burkhalter, who is the current chairperson of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), has called for using all diplomatic means to overcome a crisis in relations between Russia and Ukraine.
The Swiss president said that Crimea’s re-unification with Russia did not mean an end to diplomacy.
A sincere and honest dialogue as well as resolute efforts aimed at building relations have never been more important than they are today, the OSCE chairperson said, adding that Switzerland would continue playing its consistent role in the process during its OSCE presidency.
At the same time, Burkhalter noted that Russia had violated its basic OSCE commitments by its recent actions on Crimea’s status.
