US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during his visit to Belarus announced the US’s readiness to help find a solution to the conflict in Ukraine. But according to him, Ukraine and the Russian Federation themselves must ultimately come to an agreement. It is reported by Belta.
"This is just the issue that all of Europe and the whole world must participate in order to resolve it. But in the end, Russia and Ukraine must solve it themselves. Everything that we can do in the United States, we will do," said Pompeo.
Earlier Mike Pompeo said that the State Department is working on preparing a new meeting between US President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Pompeo announced this in an interview with the journalist ABC, which was published by the press service of the State Department.
“We work on many things with them (the Ukrainian leadership - ed.). When the time comes - they are both busy people - we will find a suitable opportunity for him (Zelensky - ed.) And the president (Trump - ed.) To meet. Do you remember that they met in New York in January or, sorry, in September. I’m sure they will meet again somewhere,” - Pompeo stated.
The Secretary of State does not exclude that Trump and Zelensky can once again meet both in Washington, and in Kyiv, or in any other place.
According to Pompeo, the leaders of the two countries are directing the development of Ukraine in the right direction. In particular, the United States helped Ukraine with weapons. Moreover, Washington helped Ukraine determine which judicial system it needed.
“Country (Ukraine - ed.) Is located right on the border between Russia and Europe. It is very important that we get it right and help Ukrainians get what they want,” - Pompeo stated.
