MOSCOW, July 23. /TASS/. The Normandy Four (Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine) leaders will hold a telephone conversation on Thursday, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told TASS.
"I confirm," he said, answering a question whether Vladimir Putin, Angela Merkel, Francois Hollande and Petro Poroshenko would hold a telephone conversation on Thursday.
Peskov said previously that the "heads of state during a conversation last week agreed to continue contacts in this [Normandy] format as often as required. When the need arises, the dialogue in this format will continue," he said.
The leaders of the Normandy Four discussed over the phone on July 17 at the initiative of the German side the situation in eastern Ukraine in the context of the implementation of the Minsk agreements reached on February 12. They emphasised the need of strict and comprehensive compliance with these accords to defuse the Ukrainian crisis.
