MOSCOW, April 23 /TASS/. There is no need for direct contacts between the Russian and US presidents, Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama, for the moment because progress has already been made, US Ambassador to Moscow John Tefft told journalists on Thursday.
Tefft said that the United States was satisfied with the work of the German chancellor and the French president. President Obama maintains contacts by telephone. The most important thing, according to Tefft, is to make the Minsk agreements be implemented.
President Obama telephoned the Russian and Ukrainian presidents prior to the second round of the Normandy four negotiations, the US diplomat said.
