"In Paris we agreed to cancel the elections, but the play with its postponing...I would rather not to comment on it. It is certainly a dirty game, and for today our absolute priority is to agree upon the conditions under which elections should take place, and the second is to agree on the election modalities:how to consider features of such elections, in particular, to ensure the voting and eligibility for displaced persons," Klimkin stated.

In addition, the possibility of holding the elections must be approved by the conclusion of the ODIHR [the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights - ed.], Foreign Minister stressed. "Namely, the ODIHR  will make a preliminary conclusion about the presence of secure situation for the elections. If there is no such situation, then the elections are out of the question", Klimkin claimed.
