Ukraine’s authorities have agreed to cease fire in southeastern regions and are ready for a dialogue with local self-defenыe forces, US Secretary of State John Kerry said.
Lavrov and Kerry also agreed to take additional efforts to establish conditions to implement Geneva agreements aimed at stopping the use of force in Ukraine and immediately launching an open and accountable process of constitutional reform with participation of all Ukrainian regions, the ministry said.
The UN Security Council should “intensely control” the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 2166 which calls for a full, thorough and independent international investigation into the July 17 Malaysian Boeing crash in eastern Ukraine, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday.
Lavrov “stressed the need to go back to the arrangements made in the Geneva Statement adopted by Russia, the US, the EU and Ukraine on April 17, including the tasks of discontinuing the use of force and immediately starting an open and accountable process of constitutional reform with the participation of all Ukrainian regions. The minister and the secretary agreed to take additional efforts to establish conditions for the implementation of the Geneva agreements,” the Foreign Ministry said.
Lavrov and Kerry also “discussed the situation in the Middle East following the deterioration of the situation in Gaza and the stalemate in the Palestinian-Israeli talks” and “exchanged views on issues of arms control, including in the context of compliance with the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty”, the ministry said.
