UN chief tells Lavrov Ukraine ceasefire needed ASAP

TEHRAN, Apr. 26 (MNA) – In a meeting with the Russian Foreign Miniter on Tuesday, UN Secretary-General called for creating conditions for effective dialogue and a ceasefire in Ukraine as soon as possible.

"We are extremely interested in finding ways in order to create the conditions for effective dialogue, create the conditions for a ceasefire as soon as possible, create the conditions for a peaceful solution", Guterres said at a meeting with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

He was later due to meet President Vladimir Putin.

This will be the first contact of the Russian President with the UN Secretary-General since the beginning of the Ukraine war. The last time they interacted was in a video format last May when Guterres also visited Russia.
