The French Ministry of Defense announced the search for ways to resolve the conflict in Ukraine

PARIS, Nov 20 France and partners are exploring ways to politically resolve the conflict in Ukraine, the French Defense Minister said Sebastien Lecornu in an interview with the Journal du Dimanche. “Together with our allies, we are considering possible political options to end the conflict in Ukraine,” Lecornu said, answering a question about how he feels about US statements about Ukraine's inability to return a number of territories to the military “No conflict ends without a political and diplomatic solution,” he added. Lecornu added that French President Emmanuel Macron had “discussed for hours” with all parties to the conflict, and that France would continue to do so, but only Ukraine would have to decide which the terms and terms of the negotiations are acceptable to her. On Wednesday, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, said that the The concerns regarding the return of territories, including Crimea, are “small.” Earlier in November, the Washington Post reported that the administration of US President Joe Biden was privately asking the Ukrainian leadership to show openness to negotiations with Russia. Later, White House spokesman John Kirby rejected this message, noting that no one from the United States is pushing Vladimir Zelensky to negotiate with Russia, and Kyiv will decide on its readiness for them.
