BERLIN, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Germany speaks in favor of setting up an international contact group that will help de-escalate the situation around Ukraine, Germany’s Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Wednesday in the course of a visit to Angola.
After reaching agreement on a mission of observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), it is important now to probe into the possibility of other forms of international collaboration, like the formation of a contact group, Steinmeier said.
The foreign minister believes that the conflict around Crimea cannot be resolved in the short term, however, the international community should make sure that it does not grow over into a new escalation that would trigger an armed standoff.
