BERLIN, May 05. /ITAR-TASS/. German Chancellor Angela Merkel supports the idea of holding another international meeting in Geneva on settling the crisis in Ukraine, government spokesperson Steffen Seibert said in Berlin on Monday.

Seibert added that the chancellor agreed in these terms with Germany’s Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

“We want the same thing,” Seibert said. “There are no differences in our position.”

The idea of arranging another conference in Geneva was put forward earlier by Germany’s Foreign Ministry.

The latest joint agreement on force renunciation and disarmament of illegal armed groups, signed by Ukraine, Russia, the European Union and the United States in Geneva in April, “has not been implemented yet”, Steinmeier told German public broadcaster ARD on Monday.

“We do need a follow-up conference, as we should finally and fully agree on the diplomatic ways of Ukraine’s crisis regulation”, the minister said.
