Rau: OSCE to create all conditions for prisoner exchange

OSCE will create all the conditions for the exchange of prisoners, but the political will of the stakeholders is needed to complete this process.

"I have no doubt that the political will of stakeholders is needed to complete this process, but what the OSCE must and will do is to create the conditions for such political will to be expressed as soon as possible and the results to be implemented," OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland Zbigniew Rau said at a joint briefing with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Rau added that the OSCE Mission and specialized organizations on the ground are studying all the circumstances of the process, looking for the right way, the right moment, agreeing on the procedure together with stakeholders.

The OSCE will continue its efforts to resolve the conflict in eastern Ukraine, Rau added.

"As the chairperson of the organization, I will continue to encourage member countries to find common ground. In this context, I will go to Moscow next week," he said.

As reported, the visit of OSCE Chairman-in-Office Zbigniew Rau to Moscow is scheduled for February 15.
