On the margins of the Munich Security Conference Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Vadym Prystaiko held a meeting with Minister for Foreign Affairs of Germany Heiko Maas.
The issue related to the unsatisfactory implementation of the agreements reached by the leaders of the Normandy Four in Paris was in the focus of the meeting. Ukrainian Foreign Minister stressed that real progress was achieved only in the part of the simultaneous release of detainees. The ceasefire arrangements, admission of representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross to the occupied territories, and the round-the-clock monitoring of the OSCE mission remain unfulfilled by the Russian side.
The sides also discussed the necessary steps to prepare for the next Normandy summit which was agreed in Paris.
The interlocutors touched upon bilateral cooperation between Ukraine and Germany.
