German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky agreed that all the conditions for holding the Normandy Four summit were met.
Earlier, the DPR envoy to the contact group and foreign Minister of the self-proclaimed Republic Natalia Nikonorova said that Kiev threatened to disrupt the summit of the “Normandy four” because of sabotage of the process of breeding forces in the area of Petrovsky in the Donbass.
According to Seibert, the main topic of the conversation between the two leaders was the preparation of the meeting.
“The two sides were unanimous that the conditions for such a meeting were met after the trilateral contact group on October 1 agreed on further deployment of forces on the conflict line, on the procedure for local elections in parts of eastern Ukraine, as well as on the entry into force of the special status of this region”, – said Seibert.
In addition, Merkel and Zelensky also discussed the transit of Russian gas and emphasized the need to resolve it as soon as possible.
