The meeting of Norman Quartet to resolve the crisis in Ukraine could take place soon. This was stated by Germany's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Martin Schafer, reports TASS.
"I think that a meeting of ministers will take place in the near future, but officially I cannot confirm it yet as we have to contact with other three partners (Russia, Ukraine, France)" - he said.
Work on “road map” for the implementation of the Minsk agreements, on which leaders of Germany, Russia, Ukraine and France agreed at a meeting in Berlin on October 20, is proceeding "with difficulties and slowly".
"There are some steps forward, sometimes backward. After the Norman Quartet summit, the number of violations of the truce has grown and reached a level that we have not seen for a long time. Although recently the situation improved somewhat, we cannot say yet that the crisis is over," Schafer noted.
Berlin expects that with “road map” it will be possible to overcome the differences in the interpretation of the Minsk agreements in order to have an undeniable plan on reconciliation of the conflicting parties," Schafer said.
Earlier it was reported that Germany confirmed Putin's participation in meeting of Norman Quartet. The Kremlin is also officially informed about the participation of Putin in a meeting.
