OSCE supports Kuchma's initiatives in Minsk - Lajcak

The OSCE welcomes the restoration of the working atmosphere at the latest meeting in Minsk of the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) on the peaceful settlement of the situation in Donbas and supports the initiative voiced by Ukraine's representative Leonid Kuchma.

OSCE Chairperson-in-Office and Slovakia's Foreign and European Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajcak said this at a joint briefing with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin in Kyiv on Thursday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

The OSCE welcomes the working atmosphere that has been restored in the Trilateral Contact Group and also welcomes the four initiatives that were announced by the second president, Kuchma, Lajcak said. They have the potential that can change the rhetoric of the conflict, and the OSCE hopes that all players in this arena will support these initiatives, he added.

Lajcak said the purpose of his visit to Ukraine was to inspire in some way the new leadership of the country to jointly think about how it would be possible to alleviate the humanitarian situation in Donbas in the interests of the people of Ukraine.

Of course, an important prerequisite for achieving positive changes is a guaranteed and lasting ceasefire, Lajcak said.
