MOSCOW, June 3. /TASS/. Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Grigory Karasin and Swiss Foreign Ministry’s State Secretary Yves Rossier have discussed topical issues of a peace settlement in Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"Topical issues of a peace settlement in Ukraine were discussed," the Foreign Ministry said. "The importance was noted of systematic efforts to implement the package of measures to enforce the Minsk Accords of February 12. The need was emphasized for starting a real political dialogue between Kiev and Ukraine’s southeast and the beginning of a constitutional reform accommodating the interests of Ukraine’s regions, including the country’s southeast."
"The negotiators hailed the first meetings of the working subgroups within the Contract Group for Ukrainian crisis settlement," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
Karasin and Rossier considered a number of practical aspects of interaction in the context of Switzerland’s mission to represent the interests of Russia in Georgia and of Georgia’s interests in Russia. There was an exchange of opinion on issues of regional cooperation in the CIS space.
