Ukraine/Russia/“Normandy format” meeting in Berlin

Published on January 23, 2015
Statement by M. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development

Berlin, January 21, 2015

This meeting didn’t resolve all the problems, but it enabled us to obtain an agreement on the withdrawal of heavy weapons from either side of the Line of Contact agreed in Minsk on 19 September. The Trilateral Contact Group will meet in the coming days to implement this withdrawal.

Depending on compliance with this measure and observance of the ceasefire, the ministers will take a decision at a later stage on the possible organization of the Astana summit./.
