Tillerson Set To Meet Poroshenko In First Official Visit To Ukraine

Mae Harvey | 10 July, 2017, 00:55

Tillerson says that the USA goal in Ukraine is to restore the country's territorial sovereignty and integrity. He thanked Tillerson for the continued US commitment to Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity and expressed deep appreciation for his "symbolic and timely visit immediately after the meetings at the G-20 in Hamburg" where Trump met with Putin.

Moscow has repeatedly said the Ukraine crisis is an internal conflict and that Kiev is not fulfilling its part of the Minsk agreements and refusing to negotiate with its own people in Donbass.

The continuing war in the industrial Donbas region has killed more than 10,000 people and displaced about 1.7 million, and dealt a heavy blow to Ukraine as it tries to break with Russian Federation and integrate with the European Union.

While Trump called the meeting "tremendous" and has called for better ties with Moscow, his administration maintained USA sanctions targeting Russian Federation over its 2014 seizure of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula and backing of armed separatists in eastern Ukraine.

Tillerson also addressed Mr. Trump's meeting with Putin. Amid reports that they met for more than two hours, Mr Tillerson said "neither one of them wanted to stop" talking.

Tillerson also commented on another key bone of contention between Trump and Putin at the G20: allegations of Russian interference in U.S. election campaign, in favour of the Republican candidate.

The company said the rate of reduction varies across locations depending on the Value-Added Tax rates applicable prior to GST. On Wednesday, Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) and Renault India said that they have reduced prices due to GST roll-out.

When pressed on the question, Mr. Tillerson used language he had used Friday night, as the meeting in Hamburg broke up, calling the election hacks the "first topic for discussion". "Nothing will be done until the Ukrainian & Syrian problems are solved!" he wrote. "Now it is time to move forward in working constructively with Russian Federation!" another tweet read.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday named a former North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ambassador and National Security Council director as the United States' special envoy to Ukraine.

"We are disappointed by the lack of progress under the Minsk agreement, that is why we are appointing a special representative to put additional impulses".

Tillerson spoke Sunday, Mr. Volker sat in the front row, and he was to remain in Kiev after Mr. Tillerson departed to discuss how to enforce the largely ignored Minsk accord agreed in 2015 that envisioned a way out of the Ukraine impasse.

"Kiev did not plan, did not start this war", he added.

Despite the well-documented presence of its troops and armour in eastern Ukraine, Russia insists it is not directly involved in the conflict. "We firmly adhere to our commitments", Ukrainian leader said.
