Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajčák met with US Ambassador to Slovakia Theodore Sedgwick on March 5 to discuss current developments in Ukraine and the Crimea.

Based on Sedgwick’s request, Lajčák informed the ambassador about details of his working visit to Ukraine last week, when together with partners from Visegrad Four (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia) countries Lajčák travelled to Kiev and met with representatives of the new Ukrainian Government, the TASR newswire wrote. Lajčák and Sedgwick also discussed the conclusions of the extraordinary session of the Council of Europe for Foreign Affairs, held on March 3 in Brussels and concurred on the need to continue the close co-operation between EU and United States in seeking a peaceful resolution to the Ukrainian crisis.

If Russia were to cut off energy supplies to Ukraine, Sedgwick also wondered about potential reserve flow of gas from western Europe to Ukraine in light of the conclusions reached by EU Council at the level of energy ministers in Brussels. Lajčák informed Sedgwick about gas reserves in Slovakia’s reservoirs, which might last for 4-5 months at regular spring and summertime consumption.
