UNITED NATIONS, May 11./TASS/. The United Nations Secretariat has not confirmed plans to open a UN office in Ukraine to support the implementation of the Minsk agreements, voiced by Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko.
In reply to a Tass query, Deputy Spokesman for the Secretary-General Farhan Haq said he could not confirm this.
Earlier on Monday, the Ukrainian president said the UN would shortly open an office in the country that would concentrate on "ensuring the implementation of the Minsk agreements".
Farhan Haq drew attention to a report of the UN press service after Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon had met with the Ukrainian leader, which said nothing about these agreements.
