End to war in eastern Ukraine is OSCE’s priority – French representative

The end of the war in eastern Ukraine is a priority for the OSCE. France is fully committed to the full implementation of the Minsk agreements.

Permanent Representative of France to the OSCE, H.E. Ambassador Véronique Roger-Lacan stated this during the 25th meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Milan on December 6, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"On November 11, we marked the 100th anniversary of the truce [the end of the First World War]. And after 100 years, terrible military actions have been taking place in eastern Ukraine for more than four years. The end of hostilities is a priority for the OSCE," the French ambassador said.

She stressed that France together with Germany was always ready to remain a mediator in the Normandy format for the sake of the full implementation of the Minsk agreements.

Véronique Roger-Lacan once again stressed that France supported the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

The French ambassador also said that one of the OSCE members annexed the territory of its neighbor, destabilized the region and unreasonably seized the vessels.

She stressed the need to de-escalate the situation in the region and to respect international law and the OSCE principles.
