OSCE Special Representative Martin Sajdik found no solution to the retraction forces issue on the demarcation line in the Donbas region, and expressed hope that an agreement will be reached at the next meeting in Minsk.
"There is another open-ended question, rather fundamental... We didn’t not lose hope to resolve the retraction forces on the contact line issue. I hope it will be possible at the next meeting”, Sajdik said.
The next meeting of the contact group in Minsk is scheduled on August 3.
OSCE Special Representative also urged the parties of the Donbas conflict to fulfill all the Minsk Agreements before the end of this year.
"We must try to implement this agreement later this year", he said.
