Germany finds necessary to prolong OSCE monitoring mission in eastern Ukraine, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier stated.

 “We support extension of OSCE mission”, - said the Minister.

 “Events that have been happening in Ukraine since 2014 demonstrated how important OSCE is for Europe’s security: without a monitoring mission we, despite all failures, wouldn’t have gone so far as to what concerns military de-escalation and withdrawal of weapons”, - Steimeier added.

 “In order to ensure OSCE’s operation, it is necessary to extend the mission as soon as possible”, - the Minister emphasized.
