KIEV, February 1. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry has dismissed a report published by The Independent newspaper in London on alleged plans by Kiev to join the fight against the IS (Islamic state) terrorist group in Syria, the ministry’s Ambassador at Large, Dmitry Kuleba, said on Monday.
"It is fake," Kuleba said. "We are involved in active cooperation on a peace settlement in the Middle East but there are no plans for our troops' deployment in the region, including Syria and Iraq."
The Independent's report said that a possible Ukrainian military contribution to the fight against IS in Syria - an idea it said was mooted by President Petro Poroshenko - would be discussed during a visit by US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to Ukraine this week.
