Talks on Ukraine resume in Minsk

MINSK, 13 February (BelTA) - A regular round of talks to secure peaceful settlement of the situation in eastern Ukraine is underway in Minsk, BelTA learned from the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The meeting of the working groups will be followed by the talks of the Trilateral Contact Group.

At the previous meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group on 30 January, OSCE's special representative in the Trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine Martin Sajdik emphasized full commitment to the Minsk Agreements and personal conviction that they are indispensable and irreplaceable for a peaceful resolution of the conflict in the east of Ukraine.

It was also noted that in 2018 the number of civilian casualties has significantly decreased, reaching the lowest level since the beginning of the conflict. According to preliminary data of the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission, no civilian deaths have been registered since the beginning of 2019. This is a clear achievement of the work of the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk, Martin Sajdik said.
