MOSCOW, September 30. /TASS/. Leaders of the Normandy Four group (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine) may hold another meeting soon, but first experts need to do certain work, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.
"This cannot be ruled out," Peskov said when asked if the meeting of the Normandy Four leaders could be expected in the near future.
Peskov stressed that first experts of these four countries need to prepare groundwork for this and "do their homework."
"The work at the expert level is underway. After the necessary conditions are prepared, the final decision will be taken and we will inform you of that," Peskov said. "For a summit meeting there is still the need to do additional homework," he added.
The expert-level work in Minsk, Belarus, has not stopped, Peskov said. "The dialogue is conducted via different channels. Speaking that the dialogue has been suspended is incorrect. It is underway through various channels and at different levels," he said.
