Secretary Kerry Makes a Phone Call During Travel to the Middle East

Today, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov about the situation in Ukraine.  According to a senior State Department official:

"During a phone call this afternoon, Secretary Kerry urged Foreign Minister Lavrov to stop the flow of heavy weapons and rocket and artillery fire from Russia into Ukraine, and to begin to contribute to deescalating the conflict.  He did not accept Foreign Minister Lavrov’s denial that heavy weapons from Russia were contributing to the conflict. 

"Secretary Kerry provided an update on his meetings in the Middle East and Paris this past week and the ongoing efforts to achieve a ceasefire.

“The Secretary underlined our support for a mutual cease fire verified by the OSCE and reaffirmed our strong support for the international investigation to show the facts of MH17.”
