Ukraine proposes strengthening the activities of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission with additional human and financial resources.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said this at a joint press conference with OSCE Chairperson-in-Office, Albania’s Prime Minister and Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, Edi Rama, in Kyiv on Monday.
“We have made a formal proposal to continue the activity of this mission, not only to continue, but to add human and financial resources to make this mission even more effective than in previous years,” he said.
Prystaiko said that he had discussed with Rama the interaction within the SMM in Donbas and the expectation by the Ukrainian side of additional efforts of the mission.
“We hope that this year we will make enough progress towards a peaceful resolution of the war in eastern Ukraine,” Prystaiko said.
