Peskov: 'Just, long-term peace' should be outcome of conflict in Ukraine


(MENAFN) "A just, long-term peace" should be the outcome of the conflict in Ukraine, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov made a statement on Tuesday.

Remarking on recent comments by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Peskov, in a press meeting in Moscow, agreed that the situation in Ukraine will most probably be settled through talks.

"The fact that the outcome of what is happening should be a just, long-term peace, we can agree with this. But as for the prospects of any negotiations, we do not see them at the moment," he added.

"At some point this will end and it will end almost certainly with diplomacy, with a negotiation. But what I think we have to see is a just and durable peace, not a phony peace," Blinken informed the WSJ CEO Council Summit in Washington on Monday.

Last week, US President Joe Biden stated he wants to talk with Russian president Vladimir Putin if there was a sincere interest to stop the war in Ukraine, which began in February.

But Russia ruled out calls that it should exit completely from Ukraine as part of any future discussions to stop its "special military operation."

About drone invasions on Russia's military airfields, which, in agreement with the Defense Ministry, left three people dead, Peskov noted: "The line openly declared by the Ukrainian regime to continue such terrorist acts (on the territory of Russia) is dangerous. Of course, it is taken into account, and the necessary measures are taken."
