    Chargé d'Affaires, a.i., of the United States of America Kristina Kvien, said this during her meeting with First Deputy Foreign Minister Emine Dzhaparova on October 26.

    Emine Dzhaparova expressed her gratitude to the United States for its support of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, for the unwavering position of the United States regarding Russia's aggression in Donbas and illegal occupation of Crimea.  In this respect, she briefed her interlocutor regarding Ukraine's vision of the basic elements and substance of the Crimean platform, the main goal of which is consolidation of the non-recognition policy of Crimea's occupation by the international community. 

    In her turn, Kristina Kvien expressed her readiness to cooperate with Ukraine and emphasized that the U.S. position, reflected in Secretary Pompeo’s Crimea Declaration, remains firm and unwavering - Crimea is a part of Ukraine and the United States will never recognize Russia's attempts to annex it.

    Emine Dzhaparova also expressed her gratitude for the consistent U.S. support of Ukraine within the framework of international organizations and emphasized the importance of the renewed and significantly reinforced UN General Assembly resolutions, "Problems of militarization of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, as well as parts of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov" and "The Human Rights Situation in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine," that Ukraine plans to submit for consideration in the near future.
