Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that he does not see the possibility of a meeting of foreign ministers in Normandy format because the sides have not yet agreed on a roadmap to resolving the conflict in the Donbas region. TASS agency reported this.
"The leaders of the Normandy Quartet remain in constant contact... The Ministerial meeting of the Normandy format can be held due to the presence of the roadmap, but as for now there isn’t any", Lavrov said.
