"We propose to convene extraordinary meetings of the Trilateral Contact Group's working subgroup on security, the working subgroup on political affairs, and the working subgroup on humanitarian affairs and assure you of our readiness to work 24/7 to accelerate the consideration of issues that have been on the agenda of the relevant working subgroups for many months so that Tripartite Contact Group can approve relevant decisions," the statement said.

Ukraine calls for the checkpoints to be opened by the occupied territories as soon as possible.
