Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office to the Trilateral Contact Group Martin Sajdik believes that one can’t speak of any moves forward in the issue of hostage exchange. Martin Sajdik said that during the briefing after the meeting of the trilateral contact group in Minsk, Interfax.by reports.
"It’s hard to say whether there was a progress today. I think that discussing this issue (preparation for the hostage exchange) is quite a complex topic, which relates to peoples’ lives. From my point of view everyone should act bindingly. Unfortunately, I can’t speak of any specific progress in this issue today,” he noted.
According to the special representative the subgroup on security issues discussed the details of implementing the “school truce”. The issues on disengagement in Stanytsya Luhanska and new other safety zones were also discussed. Apart from that the working group paid their attention to security of the critical civilian infrastructure, said Sajdik.
Next meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group will take place on September 6, Sajdik specified.
