KIEV, June 11 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko did not rule out a roundtable discussion in the eastern city of Donetsk with the participation of different parties to the conflict that support his peace plan, the presidential press service said on Wednesday, June 11.
“We need no negotiations for the sake of negotiations. Our peace plan should become the basis for further de-escalation of the conflict. Terrorists must lay down their arms,” Poroshenko said at a meeting with entrepreneur Sergei Taruta appointed by Kiev as the governor of the Donetsk region.
Poroshenko held a telephone conversation with U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden to tell him about his peace plan.
“In reply, the U.S. vice president stated his readiness to continue to support Ukraine’s steps to ensure its territorial integrity and joint efforts to settle the situation in the east of Ukraine,” the press service said.
