The dialogue in the Normandy Format will renew in January and wil be held on the level of advisers, as Interfax-Ukraine reported citing Steffen Seibert, the spokesperson of the Federal Government of Germany.
“The substantive discussion took place between the advisers and it should be continued in January,” Seibert said.
As he noted, the meeting in January will take place on the level of the foreign policy advisers of the head of states of the Normandy Format.
The meeting that took place on the eve was dedicated, first of all, to Kerch Strait incident.
“You know that the Federal Government condemned the use of the armed force in the Kerch Strait at the end of November. From our point of view, the dialogue and de-escalation now are the most important to prevent the further escalation. Yesterday’s working meeting in the Normandy Format was dedicated to it,” Seibert explained.
Earlier, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko claimed that Ukraine was ready for a meeting in the Normandy format on the level of political advisers to de-escalate the situation.
