Latvia sees restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity as its priority

Latvia pays special attention to respect for the sovereignty and restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis said this in his speech at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"For Latvia, the peaceful resolution of the conflict in Ukraine and respecting Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity is a priority. Russia's continued aggression in Eastern Ukraine and the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol cannot become 'business as usual,'" he said.

He added that Latvia supported the efforts of the Normandy format countries and the Trilateral Contact Group.

"We support diplomatic efforts to resolve the crisis in the Normandy format and in the framework of the Trilateral Contact Group, so as to achieve full implementation of the Minsk agreements by all parties involved," Vejonis said.

He also said that international monitors must be granted access to Crimea and that human rights violations against residents of Crimea, including Crimean Tatars, must stop.
