PARIS, February 18. /TASS/. The delivery of two Mistral amphibious assault ships to Russia is not on the agenda at the moment, French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told the National Assembly on Wednesday.
"In November 2014 President Francois Hollande said that the delivery of Mistrals to Russia had been postponed indefinitely, because compliance with the contract terms was impossible in view of the situation in Ukraine. At the moment the situation in Ukraine has not changed. France’s priority is stabilization and security in that country, which directly depends on the observance of ceasefire by all parties, and also the implementation of a political project that would pave the way out of the crisis," Le Drian said.
"That’s what the situation looks like. The question of Mistral’s delivery will not be on the agenda until further notice (from the president)," Le Drian said.
