UN chief Ban calls for restraint, dialogue in Ukraine

Published on 18/02/2014

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appealed Tuesday for restraint and a "genuine dialogue" in strife-torn Ukraine.

Ban was “extremely concerned” by reports of a resumption of violence and fatalities there, his spokesman Martin Nesirky said after reports that seven people were killed Tuesday in the bloodiest day of clashes in nearly three months of protests.

Ban “reiterates his appeal to all concerned to act with restraint in order to avoid any further violence,” Nesirky said.

“He urges the renewal of genuine dialogue between all parties.”
