OSCE hopes there will be a new impetus for the further implementation of Minsk agreements in Donbas conflict. The Organization's Secretary-General Thomas Greminger stated this on April 24 as quoted by Interfax-Ukraine.
'Let's see if there's a new opportunity due to the developments in Ukraine and the election of the new president', he said.
Speaking of possible ways to provide the fulfillment of Minsk agreements, Greminger offered to sent the joint peacekeepers contingent of the UN and OSCE. 'We offered such option, but currently, there are very different proposals; the Russian ones, these from Ukraine and the U.S., and so far we cannot make these positions closer. We will not have the opportunity to approve the UN Security Council resolution, which should be the basis of this operation. Currently, these positions are too different', he said.
Previously, current OSCE chairman Miroslav Lajcak stated that the Organization was ready to show support for Ukraine if the UN decides to deploy the peacekeeping mission in Donbas.
