Kyiv working in Normandy format and with U.S. on Donbas conflict – Klimkin
Ukraine is working in parallel in the Normandy format and with the United States for achieving peace in Donbas, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin has said.
"I talk with U.S. Special Representative on Ukraine Kurt Volker sometimes two or three times a day. I've also spoken with Department of State Secretary Rex Tillerson several times recently about what we can do, what pressure we can apply, et cetera," Klimkin said in Munich on Friday.
Klimkin said two projects are underway to bring peace to Donbas, the American project and the Normandy format. He added it is not important who will sit down at the negotiating table, stressing that achieving concrete results are paramount.
Klimkin said France is supporting Ukraine's position and said he hoped Germany's new coalition government would as well.
