It should 'facilitate the implementation of Minsk agreements and the restoration of sovereignty of Ukraine over the temporarily occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions'.

The ministry added that despite significant disagreements with the Russian side, Ukraine, Germany, France and Russia came to the conclusion that the basic principles of the peacekeeping operation in the conflict area will be defined further.

The Ukrainian side reiterated on its principal requirement: the mandate of the future deal should cover the entire militant-held territory, including the state border between Ukraine and Russia in the conflict zone; foresee the withdrawal of foreign armed formations, military vehicles and mercenaries, and facilitate restoration of peace in the region.
