German Chancellor Angela Merkel ready to participate in the summit of the "Normandy format" on settlement of situation in Ukraine, but date to date no, said the official representative of the government of Germany Steffen Seibert.
"The Chancellor remains committed to such a meeting if there is a chance of success ", – quotes his words RIA " Novosti ".
"the dialogue continues ", – he added. On Sunday, leader Vladimir Putin said that the meeting "channel four" in Berlin on Ukraine would be relevant, if experts will find the real steps for the settlement. Remember, the Ukrainian head Petro Poroshenko during a visit to the Donbass, said on the issue of implementation of the Minsk agreements, " until then, until you complete the security package, the Ukraine further in the political process to move you won't." Poroshenko said that the package of security involves " a complete ceasefire, the withdrawal of foreign troops from the territory of Ukraine, transfer in the first stage under the supervision of the OSCE, and the 2-stage – under the supervision of Ukraine uncontrolled sections of the Russian-Ukrainian border, the withdrawal of heavy weaponry and artillery, the unhindered access of OSCE observers to all areas ". Explaining his sentence, the head of the DND Alexander Zakharchenko said that Poroshenko " completely abolished the Minsk agreement ". Last week the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow does not step back from a meeting in the Normandy format at the level of heads of States, the options are by date and place of such a meeting are being worked out. Yesterday, Peskov said that Putin, Hollande and Merkel failed to come to a common opinion about the meeting in " Norman format ".
