Russia would like to get a better idea of what their Western partners mean when they suggest developing an international mechanism on the settlement of the situation in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
"We would like to get a better idea of what our partners mean when they suggest creating some international mechanism, of its composition," he told reporters after meeting with his U.S. counterpart John Kerry.
"The main thing for us - I reiterate - is to respect the agreements reached on February 21, primarily the agreements on the constitutional reform, creation of a government of national unity, and elections after constitutional reform. The second most important aspect is that any process that can be supported should have clear support of all regions of Ukraine," the minister said.
"Primarily, we are concerned about Crimea and the other southeastern regions in this case," Lavrov said.
