The interlocutors noted the importance and coordinated approaches in the framework of the international efforts on ensuring the deployment of the UN peacekeeping mission in the occupied territory of the Donbas, including the uncontrolled area
of the Ukraine-Russia state border.
The security forces have cleared 640 square kilometres of so far uncontrolled area
in the valley along the border with Afghanistan, the Inter-Services Public Relations said in a statement.
RAWALPINDI -- Pakistan Army has cleared 650 square kilometres of uncontrolled area
in the final phase of operation in Shawal Valley.
We don't know what exactly happened because it has occurred in an uncontrolled area
," said Brig Nanayakkara.
Presence of peacekeepers in the uncontrolled area
of the Ukraine-Russia border is mandatory to stop the infiltration of Russian troops and arms, fuel and military equipment in the territory of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko said.
I am confident that this mission can become a solid guarantor of ceasefire regime, disarmament of the illegal armed groups, stimulate the withdrawal of Russian troops from the occupied territory and ensure a reliable closure of the uncontrolled area
of the border between Ukraine and Russia in order to prevent new infiltration of Russian troops, Russian weaponry, so that we can finally start the stage of political settlement after the implementation of the security package, the Head of State noted in the press conference following the negotiations with Federal Chancellor of Austria Sebastian Kurz.
According to him, Russia is not going to stop the aggression and violates the Minsk agreements: refuses to cease fire, withdraw heavy weaponry and foreign troops, convey control over the uncontrolled area
of the Ukraine-Russia border to the OSCE and then to the Ukrainian party.
True settlement is out of question as long as artillery shelling is continued, access to the entire occupied territory of Donbas is not provided for the OSCE, supply of Russian weaponry and troops is not terminated and access to the uncontrolled area
of our border is not ensured, Petro Poroshenko stressed.
In this context, the key value is attached to the fulfillment of the Minsk agreements provisions regarding the establishment of constant monitoring over the temporarily uncontrolled area
of the state border by the OSCE.
The parties have discussed the issues of withdrawal of all Russian troops from the territory of Ukraine, restoration of Ukrainian control over the uncontrolled area
of the Ukraine-Russia border and necessity of immediate liberation of all hostages and political prisoners illegally retained in Russia.
