«Geneva+»: Klimkin wants to involve Turkey for talks on the de-occupation of Crimea

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin believes that negotiations on de-occupation of Crimea in the format of «Geneva+» should join Turkey.

He said this on Friday 5 February after the Committee on foreign Affairs, reports «UKRINFORM».

«The Geneva format is the basis, and it is understandable, but nevertheless there should be representatives of other countries or international organizations»,- said Klimkin, noticing that the format of the «Geneva+» must include, in particular, Turkey.

The Minister recalled a recent visit to the unofficial mission of Turkey to the Crimea, «which recorded all violations of human rights, mainly in respect of the Crimean Tatar people».

«I believe that the Turkish side should be invited to discuss the humanitarian problems of the Crimea», — said Klimkin.

We will remind, «the Geneva format» means participation in negotiations between Ukraine, Russia and the EU and the USA. In addition, the composition of negotiators can officially log in and Britain — as a country-signatory of the Budapest Memorandum. But the prefix «plus» in the statement of the President Petro Poroshenko, political analyst Alexander Paliy, means engaging countries that had not signed the Memorandum. Such countries may be France and China.

Poroshenko insists that Crimea can be returned only by diplomatic means. The President has previously stated that the Peninsula should remain in the first paragraphs of the agenda of the countries — partners of Ukraine, and in this issue recently made some key breakthrough steps.
