Spokesman for the president of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that preparations for the summit in the Normandy format are not in progress, as one of the parties is changing its position, Ria news reports.
“Let's put it this way, the Normandy format, it has some difficulties with proper preparation, and it takes such valuable time,” Peskov said.
Peskov added that there were no specific dates for the meeting.
"Now there are no specific deadlines, and there can be none of them, because, you also know the position of President (Vladimir, Ed.) Putin: the preparation comes first, then the summit. Now the preparation cannot be executed, because one side's position is constantly changing," the spokesman added.
As we reported earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron and Russian President Vladimir Putin have negotiated the terms of Normandy Summit during the telephone conversation, which was initiated by French side, according to the Kremlin's press service.
Putin one again emphasized the expediency of its careful preparation, which, in his opinion, would allow to make new steps in full implementation of the Minsk agreements.
