The UK supports the statement of the U.S. State Department on the non-recognition of the annexation of Crimea as the press service of the British Foreign Ministry reported.
"The UK position is clear: we condemn Russia’s continued breach of international law; Crimea is Ukrainian territory", the message said.
The UK is still fully committed to upholding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.
As we reported that Mike Pompeo, the U.S. Secretary of State, stated that the U.S. would never recognize Crimea’s annexation the U.S. would never recognize Crimea’s annexation and would continue insisting on the restoration of Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
Russia has already reacted to this statement stating that it doubts its life-changing nature. In particular, Maria Zakharova, the Spokesperson of Russia’s Foreign Ministry claimed the uncertainty of the American foreign policy reminding about the situation with the nuclear deal with Iran and the Paris Agreement. As she wrote, the decision Obama made was “re-decided” by Trump.
