MOSCOW, June 20. /TASS/. The International Committee of the Red Cross will take part in consultations at the Minsk talks scheduled for June 23, the ICRC Kiev spokesman Ashot Astabatsyan said on Saturday.
"We have received the invitation and are confirming our readiness to render help at the consultations of the talks," Astabatsyan was quoted by the Donetsk news agency as saying.
Earlier, the ICRC offered its expert assistance at the humanitarian working group but details of possible cooperation had not been outlined then.
Astabatsyan has said that only after the start of the talks it will be possible to speak in which subgroups the ICRC will work and on what issues.
Earlier on Saturday, the representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in the Contact Group on resolving the Ukraine conflict, Denis Pushilin, said that consultations with the ICRC would be held "not at the Contact Group but on a parallel platform" on June 23.
