US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will act as a lawyer of Ukraine in negotiations with Russia. Moreover, Washington can join the "Normandy format", according to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavel Klimkin who is currently on a visit to the United States.
Klimkin noted that Tillerson was well informed about the Russian aggression against Ukraine, and various options for exiting the conflict were also discussed with him. The Ukrainian Minister went on saying that the United States is likely to join Ukraine, Germany and France in negotiations with Russia, but stressed that it is not the format of the talks that matters, but their effectiveness.
Today, May 10, Rex Tillerson and US President Donald Trump ate to meet with Russian Minister Sergei Lavrov to discuss the situation in Syria and other international problems, in particular, the conflict in Ukraine.
