Ukraine interested in preserving "Normandy-Minsk infrastructure" – foreign minister
Ukraine is interested in preserving the entire Normandy-Minsk infrastructure of talks on Donbas settlement, says Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
"In 2014, a whole infrastructure of the peace process emerged, consisting of Normandy summits, the Normandy quartet of foreign ministers, the Normandy quartet of advisors to the leaders of the four states, and the Trilateral Contact Group," Kuleba told a briefing on Friday, an UNIAN correspondent reports.
"Ukraine is interested in preserving this infrastructure, which has proved that it's capable of playing an effective and constructive role – if Russia is determined to search for solutions, not create new problems," Kuleba said.
Apart from the letter by Deputy Head of the Russian Presidential Administration Dmitry Kozak on plans to withdraw from the negotiations on Donbas, leaked yesterday, Ukraine has received no specific signals from the Kremlin in this regard.
"That is why we're in no rush to draw conclusions. We're waiting for Russia's further steps to this end. At the same time, we will approach the issue from the position that I've voiced. We're interested in preserving the entire Normandy-Minsk infrastructure," Kuleba said.
