Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland has expressed her full support for the Ukrainian president's initiative regarding the deployment of a UN peacekeeping operation in the occupied territory of the Donbas, the press service of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has reported. 

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin met with Freeland in New York as part of the general debate of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly.

"The parties discussed the urgent issues of Ukrainian-Canadian bilateral cooperation, as well as the issue of advancing the initiative of the president of Ukraine on the deployment of a UN peacekeeping operation in the occupied territory of the Donbas," reads the statement.

According to the ministry, Klimkin noted that such a possible mission should operate in the entire territory of the Donbas, including along the temporarily uncontrolled part of the Ukrainian-Russian border.

"The Canadian side expressed its full support for this initiative and approaches of Ukraine, as well as solidarity with Ukraine in the conditions of Russian aggression," the ministry said.

The diplomats also raised the issue of liberalizing the visa regime for Ukrainians.
