Assistant to the Russian President Vladislav Surkov said that the United States proposed addendum to the Russian draft resolution on the UN mission in Donbas. He stated this after the November 13 meeting with US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker in Belgrade, TASS reports.

According to him, some of the U.S. proposals to amend the draft resolution of the Russian Federation on the UN mission in Donbas are acceptable.

"We discussed in detail the Russian initiative to deploy UN forces in Ukraine, and our American friends passed over their proposals to our draft Security Council resolution - twenty-nine paragraphs, three of which our delegation considered acceptable. It’s not much, of course, but still three are not zero It’s better than zero," Surkov said.

Surkov added that the parties "have decided to continue work on convergence of positions."
