“The European Commission proposed to continue ministerial contacts within the Russia-EU-Ukraine format. The meeting is scheduled for July 11,” the ministry says.
Earlier, Russia and Ukraine initiated the tripartite format. However, Brussels rejected this initiative.
“At present, a possibility is being discussed to hold consultations at the level of experts,” the ministry says.
“We have many issues to be discussed. Russia has given a report on its concerns,” he said.
“For more than a year Russia insists the consultations within the Russia-Ukraine-EU format be held due to Kiev’s intention to sign the Association Agreement. But Brussels rejected Russia’s proposal,” Meshkov said.
“In January the Russia-EU summit reached an agreement to this effect. Two rounds were held. But I can’t say they was a big success,” he said.
