Donald Trump’s uncertainty on the USA position is the reason there is little progress in Minsk agreements implementation and ceasefire in Donbas, according to German Minister for Foreign Affairs Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Reuters reports.
Uncertainty in Moscow and Kiev about what policies U.S. President-elect Donald Trump will adopt means there is little prospect of making much progress in implementing the Minsk ceasefire accord on Ukraine, Germany's foreign minister said.
It is still unclear what the future relationship between Russia and the United States would be, according to the Minister.
"In contrast to some views I have seen, I personally think it is completely open as to (what kind of) relationship develops between the United States and Russia," he said, adding that pressing the 'reset button' had not got any easier in the last eight years given the range of new conflicts.
Earlier it was reported that Germany does not recognize Crimea as Russia. The current Interior Minister of Germany could be the next President of the Republic.
