President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said this in Washington on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Ukraine's firm position is that it is necessary to ensure the security component for the full implementation of the Minsk Agreements,” the Head of State stressed.
The President reminded of the necessity to reach sustainable ceasefire, effective monitoring of weapons withdrawal and effective control over the uncontrolled parts of the Ukrainian-Russian border.
“In case of holding elections in certain areas of Donbas on the basis of Ukrainian legislation it is necessary to ensure the withdrawal of Russian troops, the withdrawal and storage of weapons away from the illegal armed formations,” he added.
According to Poroshenko, one of the possible solutions would be the international security component in form of the OSCE armed police mission. He added Ukraine was in talks to ensure this security component.
