Ukraine's Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin, during his visit to Washington and meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump and Vice President Michael Pence, has talked the possibility of involving the U.S. in settling the situation in the Donbas, including in the Normandy format.

Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine quoting Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mariana Betsa.

"The situation in the Donbas and the implementation of the Minsk agreements were discussed. The American side has a clear understanding of what Russia's aggression means and what jeopardy it poses ... The issue of involving the U.S. in settling the situation [in the Donbas], including in the Normandy format, was also raised, Betsa said.

She added the United States had once again clearly confirmed its unwavering support of Ukraine in countering Russian aggression as well as Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity within the internationally recognized borders.
