Ukrainian Foreign Ministry waiting for Serbian Ambassador in connection with trip of Serbian deputies to Crimea
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has condemned the trip of a group of Serbian parliamentarians to the temporarily occupied Crimea and is waiting for the Ambassador of Serbia to Ukraine to provide explanations on this issue.
"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine resolutely condemns the trip of a group of Serbian parliamentarians to the occupied Crimea," the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mariana Betsa said at a briefing in Kyiv on Friday.
Betsa noted that the Serbian parliamentarians demonstratively violated Ukrainian legislation and international law.
According to her, the deputies openly call for the recognition of the annexation of Crimea by Russia and thereby violate the official position of Serbia, which supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
"The Foreign Ministry today has called the Ambassador of Serbia to the Foreign Ministry to give explanations on this issue," the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
