Minsk deals will be under risk till both sides of the Donbas conflict reach considerable progress in implementing the agreements, Foreign Minister of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier stated during the mutual press conference with US Secretary of State John Kerry, Reuters reports.

According to Steinmeier, Ukrainian authorities and militants are both “very reluctant” to move forward on the way of implementing Minsk deals.

“Implementation of Minsk deals must continue. The settlement of the conflict depends on it”, - Steimeier said.

“Two things are important in order to hold election in Donbas: the first is new law on elections, the second is security conditions that enable to hold the elections”, - Foreign Minister of Germany pointed out.
