THE HAGUE, March 25. /ITAR-TASS/. U.S. Administration believes in the necessity of a dialogue between the governments of Russia and Ukraine, a high-ranking representative of the Administration said here Monday in a comment on the first-ever meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ukraine’s acting foreign minister Andrei Dyshchitsya.
It is important for the Russian authorities to establish a direct dialogue with the Ukrainian government and Washington thinks this would be an important step, the official said.
The main problem, however, is whether or not these contacts are conducive to the defusing of tensions, he said.
The official claimed that the Ukrainian government was speaking logically enough about its openness to the constitutional reforms that might include discussions on an autonomous status of the regions like Crimea.
The U.S. is thus calling for a bilateral dialogue but it would like to see whether this dialogue brings about any convincing results, official said.
