Recent developments in Ukraine

3 MARCH 2014

CANBERRA

The Labor Opposition is deeply concerned by recent developments in Ukraine.

We support the UN Secretary General’s call for the preservation of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, and sovereignty.  Any threat to that is completely unacceptable.

Labor urges all parties to exercise restraint and to seek to resolve the situation peacefully.

Australia must work together with the international community, including as a member of the UN Security Council, to urge a peaceful resolution through dialogue.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade upgraded its travel warnings for parts of Ukraine on March 1.  We strongly encourage Australians to take that advice.
