ROME, May 04 /ITAR-TASS/. Italian Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini believes that all parties involved in current conflict in Ukraine should start urgently fulfilling completely the Geneva accords, the Italian Foreign Ministry said in a press release made public on Saturday.
“I insist on all parties involved to start urgently fulfilling the Geneva accords so that elections will take place as scheduled on May 25 and to launch constitutional reforms observing Ukraine’s territorial integrity and differences existing in that country,” the minister said.
“Violence of these days brings us back to confrontation which modern history cannot allow any more,” the Italian top diplomat noted, adding that “This only proves that the path of dialogue does not have any alternative.”
The country’s foreign minister also welcomed the release of military observers from the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) member states in Ukraine. “This is a perfect piece of news and I want to hope that this will be the first step on the path to de-escalation and resumption of dialogue that will lead to an immediate end of clashes,” Mogherini stated.
She noted that the international community “finds any mediation necessary, including through presence of OSCE observers at the scene of events to facilitate the process as Ukrainians will have inevitably to find a way to peaceful co-existence.
