Kerry, Lavrov Discuss Ukraine in Paris

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov are meeting in Paris to discuss a solution for Ukraine.

Kerry and Lavrov are meeting at the residence of the Russian ambassador to follow up on a phone call late Friday between U.S President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin about the need for a diplomatic solution, following Russia's annexation of the Crimean peninsula.

The two diplomats were expected to discuss a Ukraine-backed plan for constitutional reforms and disarmament of irregular forces, international monitors, minority rights, and direct talks between Kyiv and Moscow.
