VIENNA, February 16. /TASS/. The Chairperson-in-Office of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe /OSCE/ and Serbia’s Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic has called on all parties to the conflict in eastern Ukraine to refrain from actions that might undermine the ceasefire that came into effect on February 15, 2015.
"I expect all parties to demonstrate the highest level of responsibility by fully respecting and adhering to the ceasefire in all areas, including in and around Debaltseve," he said in a statement posted on the OSCE official website on Monday.
"I urge them to comply with the Package of Measures for the implementation of the September 2014 Minsk agreements, adopted on 12 February. Another opportunity for a peaceful resolution of the conflict should not be missed," Dacic said.
He also called on all sides to closely cooperate with the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission /SMM/ to Ukraine and to ensure the safety, security, unhindered access and freedom of movement of the SMM monitors on the ground.
He pledged that the OSCE and the Trilateral Contact Group would "continue to make every effort towards the restoration of peace and stability in Ukraine".
