On November 7, 2017, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin met with Ambassador of Ukraine to the Republic of Serbia Oleksandr Aleksandrovych to discuss current issues in bilateral relations with this country.
Apart from bilateral issues, the main emphasis during these consultations was made on the problem of Serbian mercenaries who fight in Donbas as part of the Russian terrorist troops, in particular as regards Serbia’s obligations within international anti-terrorist legal instruments to which it is a Party to.
Besides, Ukraine is seriously concerned about illegal contacts by representatives of Serbia with the occupied Crimea. We hope that the Serbian Side will fully commit itself to the principle of respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders.
Minister Klimkin and Ambassador Aleksandrovych agreed on further actions on the bilateral and multilateral level, including those in cooperation with our European friends and partners.
