President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko invited Turkish peacekeepers as part of the UN mission to take part in making peace in Donbas. Petro Poroshenko said this during a joint briefing with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, which was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.
'I offered President to intensify our dialogue, including supporting the decision regarding the deployment of peacekeepers in accordance with the UN Security Council mandate. We trust Turkey and we would be glad if Turkey took part in making peace in Donbas by deploying its peacekeeping mission as part of the UN', said Poroshenko.
As reported, during a speech at the Munich Conference, Poroshenko said that Russia has a chance to demonstrate willingness to compromise and agree to peacekeepers throughout the entire occupied Donbas territory.
US Special Representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker said that Russia-created UN draft resolution, which provides for the introduction of peacekeepers in Donbas only along the contact line, is unacceptable for the United States of America and the United Nations, since it will not guarantee security but only aggravate the conflict.
Later it was reported that Ukraine, the United States, Germany and France were 'practically ready' to submit a joint resolution regarding peacekeepers in Donbas for the UN Security Council's consideration.
