Andriy Yermak: The new multilateral treaty should make any aggression against Ukraine impossible
The new multilateral treaty should make any aggression against Ukraine impossible and become a key element of the new international security system. This was stated by Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak commenting on the face-to-face round of Ukrainian-Russian talks, which took place on March 29 in Istanbul.
“We all and I personally liaise around the clock with our international partners to elaborate a quality and effective multilateral security treaty,” he said.
According to the Head of the Office of the President, today the relevant work is underway together with the United States, Great Britain, China, Canada, France, Germany, Turkey, Italy, Poland and Israel. The leaders of these states have appointed specific political and security advisers. They are working with the Ukrainian party on a future document on security guarantees.
“Ukraine needs clearly and qualitatively formulated legally effective and binding international security guarantees. The horrors that the Russians have brought to the Ukrainian people must never be repeated,” Andriy Yermak said.
He stressed that “Ukraine is primarily concerned about ending the war, withdrawal of Russian troops from our territory and, of course, building a new security structure.”
The Head of the President’s Office noted that today it is important for Russia to stop the shelling immediately and for the full-fledged humanitarian corridors to all cities where a humanitarian catastrophe already exists or is approaching to be opened as soon as possible. First of all, we are talking about Mariupol, other cities of Donbas and Chernihiv.
Andriy Yermak thanked the members of the Ukrainian delegation for their important and difficult work.
“I’m sure everyone understands how difficult it is to negotiate with representatives of Russia today,” said the Head of the President’s Office.
