German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said on Sunday he hoped a new regulation aimed at maintaining a fragile ceasefire in eastern Ukraine could be completed soon by the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), according to Reuters.


"We are working with the OSCE for a new regulation to keep the ceasefire," Steinmeier told reporters in Oslo, Reuters wrote.

"We are now in preparation which will allow us to soon meet again on the foreign ministers' level," he said.
