MOSCOW, May 4. /TASS/. United States and other partners should be engaged in resolving the Ukraine conflict, Austrian Minister for Foreign Affairs and Integration Sebastian Kurz said in an exclusive interview with TASS ahead of his working visit to Russia.
"The Minsk agreements have provided us with frameworks within which we can work for resolving the conflict," Kurz said. "The situation on the ground is still very critical so both the European Union and Russia should wield their influence so that provisions of the Minsk agreements will be fulfilled entirely. I believe a proper format has been found in the form of Normandy Four."
Along with this, Austria’s foreign minister noted that "other partners like the US should be involved in the process of conflict settlement."
"Our common goal should be a Ukraine where stability and well-being rule," he said adding that the Ukraine crisis would be on the table of his upcoming talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
"Stabilisation of the situation in Ukraine is a matter of great importance for Austria," Kurz said adding that the distance from Vienna to Ukraine is approximately the same as the distance to Switzerland.
