Date for third round of talks yet to be finalised: Lavrov

Moscow, March 5 ( /Sputnik) Russia is waiting to hear from Ukraine on the next round of talks, as the date for the third round has not been set yet, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Saturday. “Our participants are waiting for at least some information from Ukraine, just like they were during the first two rounds. The situations seems strange as everyone is ostensibly interested in agreeing on the full resolution as soon as possible. On the other hand, Ukraine, which seems to be the most interested party in this, is constantly coming up with pretexts to delay the beginning of a new meeting,” Lavrov told reporters. “We do not have the new date yet. We were ready to set out to hold the third round as early as yesterday, which our Ukrainian colleagues know perfectly well,” Lavrov said. /SPUTNIK GK
