At a meeting of the United Nations Security Council, the United States and China called for United Nations experts to be allowed an urgent visit to the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine.

Kyiv and Moscow have accused each other of being responsible for the bombing of the nuclear facility, which Russia seized in March.

The UN Security Council met on Thursday to discuss the situation, and Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on both sides of the conflict to stop fighting near the station.

“The station should not be used as part of any military operation,” Guterres said in a statement. “An urgent agreement is needed at the technical level on a safe demilitarized perimeter to ensure the safety of the area,” Guterres said in a statement.
