"Noting the U.S. concern over the rising violence in eastern Ukraine, the Secretary requested that Russia return its representatives to the Joint Center on Coordination and Control and lower the level of violence," the statement reads.
In addition, the parties discussed the issues related to the DPRK’s destabilizing nuclear program and emphasized that neither the United States nor Russia accepts the DPRK as a nuclear power. "Both sides agreed that they will continue to work toward a diplomatic solution to achieve a denuclearized Korean peninsula," the Department of State noted.
The sides also discussed the importance of supporting the Geneva process to achieve a peaceful resolution of the Syrian conflict.
