Norwegian Foreign Minister: Europe needs to be constantly reminded of Donbas

Foreign Minister of Norway Ine Eriksen Søreide believes that the European countries need to be constantly reminded of what is happening in Donbas and that the conflict continues to claim lives of Ukrainian citizens.

"As for my visit to Mariupol and the contact line, it was very important for me to see the current situation. This conflict is of low intensity, but it continues to claim the lives of Ukrainian citizens. I think that we should constantly remind the European countries of what is happening there," the minister said during the meeting with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on September 6, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

Søreide added that it was also important for her to confirm that Norway would continue to provide support in addressing these issues, particularly, in financing the OSCE monitoring mission.

"We fully support the EU restrictive measures on Russia... We also continue to coordinate activities within Europe and fully agree with these actions. We fully support Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity both within the framework of NATO and the bilateral context of our cooperation," the Norwegian Foreign Minister assured.
