Paris: Ukraine wants a peaceful resolution of the crisis in Crimea, interim Foreign Minister Andriy Deshchytsya said ahead of potentially crucial talks in Paris Wednesday.

"We want to keep good dialogue, good relations with the Russian people," Deshchytsya said after meeting his French counterpart Laurent Fabius. "We want to settle this conflict peacefully. We don`t want to fight with Russia."

Deshchytsya is hoping to have a face-to-face meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, who is due here later in the day, but that has not been confirmed.
