UNSC to hold emergency meeting on Ukraine

imgThe UN Security Council is to hold an emergency session on Friday on the ceasefire deal in eastern Ukraine that is showing tentative signs of taking hold, diplomats said.
France and Germany requested the meeting of the 15-member council as Ukraine’s military began withdrawing heavy weapons from the frontline and fighting with pro-Russian rebels appeared to subside.
It will be the first session of the Security Council since it met on February 17 to endorse the ceasefire deal reached in Minsk between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the leaders of Ukraine, France and Germany.
Council members will hear a report from two representatives of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) on the situation on the ground, before holding talks behind closed doors.
