    Estonian formin, Poroshenko discuss deployment of UN peacekeepers in eastern Ukraine

    TALLINN, Sep 13, BNS - The possibility to deploy UN peacekeepers in the region of hostilities in eastern Ukraine was one of the topics discussed during a meeting of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Estonian Foreign Minister Sven Mikser in Kiev on Tuesday.

    "The parties coordinated approaches to the implementation of the initiative on the deployment of the UN peacekeeping mission in Donbass aimed to ensure proper implementation of the Minsk agreements. In this context, the foreign minister of Estonia clearly stated a common position on the need to deploy peacekeepers throughout the territory of certain districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, including the uncontrolled section of the Ukrainian-Russian border," the press service of the president of Ukraine said.

    Poroshenko thanked the Estonian minister for the country's humanitarian and technical assistance to Ukraine and the treatment of wounded Ukrainian servicemen.

    Spokespeople for the Estonian Foreign Ministry confirmed to BNS that the subject of peacekeepers was talked about at the meeting.

    The foreign minister of Estonia on Tuesday started a two-day visit to Ukraine during which he is scheduled to meet also with the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Andrii Parubii, Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman and Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin. Mikser will also meet with the head of the EU delegation to Ukraine, Hugues Mingarelli.
