The Minister of foreign Affairs of France Jean-Marc Ayrault at the meeting with German foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavel Klimkin in Kiev, it is necessary to ensure the vitality of the meetings in the “channel format” after several months of stagnation.
According to him, it is necessary for the implementation of the Minsk agreements, which have no alternatives.
Ayrault said that another meeting of the Ministers of the Normandy Quartet countries are required to fulfill the necessary conditions. Thus Kiev should pass a law on elections in the Donbass, and to provide the region with a special status. “This is a political condition for the meeting in the Normandy format,” said Ayrault.
