MOSCOW, May 17. /TASS/. Moscow hopes to discuss efforts towards a dialogue between Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk with visiting US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland on May 18, Russian State Secretary and Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin told TASS on Sunday.
"We will discuss the settlement process (in Ukraine) and, first of all, the implementation of the Minsk agreements, establishing a dialogue between Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk," he said.
Another Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergei Ryabkov, told TASS earlier that Russian diplomats planned to discuss with the visiting U.S. Assistant Secretary of State the Russian-US relations and the situation in Ukraine.
"On May 18, Victoria Nuland will meet with State Secretary and Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and myself," he said.
On Saturday, Nuland visited Kiev where she told journalists Washington planned to expand its participation in ensuring the implementation of the Minsk agreements jointly with the European Union and the Normandy Four countries (Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine).
