German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in Sochi, where her talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin will take place today. This is reported by dpa agency journalist Kristina Dunz.
Merkel and Putin intend to discuss the fight against terrorism, the situation in the Middle East and the implementation of the Minsk agreements.
It should be noted that earlier Kommersant newspaper reported that one of the main topics that Merkel and Putin will discuss will be a review of the sanctions regime against Russia.
Also we recall that it is not the first meeting of Putin and Merkel since the beginning of the war in Donbas. In 2015, the Chancellor of Germany came to Moscow in May. In 2016, Putin and Merkel met at the G20 summit in China and at the meeting of the Norman Quartet in Germany, which also involved the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
