S. Africa urges Russia, Ukraine to engage in dialogue

English.news.cn   2014-03-28 20:05:46

CAPE TOWN, March 28 (Xinhua) -- South Africa on Friday called upon Russia and Ukraine to engage in dialogue and cooperation in the interest of the stability.

"South Africa is of the view that the escalation of hostile language, the imposition of sanctions and counter-sanctions, the use of threat of force and violent actions do not contribute to the peaceful resolution of the situation and the economic stability of Ukraine and the region," the Department of International Relations and Cooperation said in a statement.

It said South Africa encourages the various parties to strengthen all diplomatic efforts to produce a sustainable and peaceful solution, including through appropriate international fora.

"It is essential that a political path be supported by a united, cohesive international effort towards a negotiated political settlement reflective of the will of the people aimed at establishing a democratic pluralistic society, in which minorities are protected," the statement said.

South Africa will continue to follow developments in the region, it said.
