US will not bargain over Ukraine, - Klimkin after meeting with Tillerson

The United States made it clear they would not change their position on Russia's aggression in the Donbas in exchange for cooperation with Moscow in other areas.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Holos Ameryky, this was stated by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin after a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

"A thesis was very clearly pronounced that no formal, informal, imaginary or mythological exchanges are possible," the foreign minister stressed.

"The Ukrainian issue will in no way be resolved in the context of other issues. The Ukrainian issue is fundamentally important for the United States of America," he added.

According to Klimkin, Tillerson echoes the position of the entire U.S. government, including President Donald Trump.
