"The meeting at which we went through all the issues that the parties, the Normandy leaders, agreed in Paris late last year – what has been and what has not been done – wasn't easy," he said.

In his words, all parties came to the conclusion that the summit should be held as soon as possible.

"Therefore, I think, this summit should take place in the coming months. Of course, there must be a primary condition for this – the implementation of the agreements. For us, of course, these are primarily security arrangements, so we went through all the provisions in great detail. I can't say that we have an agreed position on all the provisions," he said.

He also noted that Germany and France greatly supported Ukraine.
