He also recalled that the French Foreign Minister would be represented by his authorized person.

"We're now negotiating on how to agree, but this is because of the Germans' logistics," he said.

He said the German delegation would not manage to return to Munich before 18:00 local time, when the meeting was due to begin.

"Unfortunately, the German delegates wouldn't make it by 18:00, when the Normandy [meeting] was scheduled. We'll negotiate another timeslot," he said.

The meeting was to address security issues, namely recent escalation in Donbas, and the humanitarian situation in that part of Ukraine. The release of Ukrainian hostages by Russia-led forces in Donbas and Ukrainian prisoners in Russia was also included in the agenda of the meeting.
