President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko intends to address the General Assembly and the UN Security Council, where he will discuss the issue of the implementation of UN peacekeeping mission. This was reported by Ukraine's permanent representative to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko in an interview with Ukrinform.
"Of what we can say now, we are planning to address the General Assembly and the Security Counci. For example, at the meeting in the Security Council the issue of peacekeeping will be discussed. We were lucky, it coincided that we have something to say on this issue. I'm talking about thr vision of the UN peacekeeping operation, our approaches, why we are categorically not satisfied with the Russian project - and not only we, "he said.
According to Yelchenko, the idea of the Russian Federation regarding peacekeeping did not receive support in the Security Council.
"For the time being, practically none of the members of the Security Council except Russia, actually, spoke in favor of their ideas. Some simply did not say anything, while the overwhelming majority said that they saw no point in working on exactly this format," he added.
In addition, Yelchenko announced a lot of bilateral meetings of Poroshenko in the UN, as well as the president's participation in several additional thematic events.
