Qa-41, 20 July 2017, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Hüseyin Müftüoğlu, In Response To A Question Regarding The Statements Of The Separatist Groups In Eastern Ukraine
We consider the statements of separatist groups in eastern Ukraine on the establishment of a new state as violation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
It is clear that such declarations and acts hinder the solution efforts.
We maintain that the solution to be found to the situation in eastern Ukraine should be based on its territorial integrity, sovereignty and international law. We will continue to support all peaceful initiatives to this end, primarily the Minsk process.
We think it is important that all relevant parties act likewise.
