The next round of Normandy talks could take place in summer; Olena Zerkal’, Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine said that in an interview with one of Ukrainian TV channels.
‘I believe the meeting could take place in summer. Angela Merkel is very much involved in this process. The sides discussed the opportunity of the meeting after she comes back to work after the summer vacations,’ the Ukrainian official said.
She added that all parties to the negotiation process understand there will be no immediate result from these meetings. ‘The most important is to keep the situation in Donbas stable, to prevent it from turning into a direct full-scale opposition,’ Zerkal concluded.
