KIEV, March 3 (Reuters) - Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk warned on Monday that a military conflict in his east European country would threaten the stability of the whole region.

He also denied the new government installed after the removal of President Viktor Yanukovich would nationalise private business.

"I was and am a supporter of a diplomatic solution to the crisis, as a conflict would destroy the foundations for stability in the whole region," Yatseniuk said at a meeting with businessmen.

He reiterated that the government would be ready to meet any conditions set by the International Monetary Fund to secure financial assistance.
