MOSCOW, October 12. /TASS/. Moscow does not think that a possible meeting of the leaders from the Normandy format countries (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine) has been prepared sufficiently, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
"We always speak very accurately about such plans [to convene a new summit]," Peskov said, noting that it was expedient to hold such meetings as far as they were qualitatively prepared.
"Such level of readiness has not yet been ensured," the Kremlin spokesman said.
It was earlier reported that the leaders of the four countries were preparing for a new meeting. Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said that the meeting was planned and would be held in the capital of Germany.
However, the Kremlin spokesman later said that he could not confirm so far that the leaders of the Normandy format countries had agreed the date and the place of such a meeting.
