PARIS, August 16, /ITAR-TASS/. French President Francois Hollande urged Kiev to show restraint during the army operation in the south-eastern regions of the country.
Hollande urged Ukraine to show “restraint and discretion” during the army operation against militias, the Elysee Palace said on Saturday after the president’s telephone call with European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso.
Hollade and Barroso noted the humanitarian situation in eastern regions of Ukraine and the need to create conditions for delivering humanitarian aid and resuming “a meaningful political process”, the statement said.
The French president reiterated his readiness to organise a new summit in the Normandy format in order to support this political process.
It said the upcoming meeting between the foreign ministers of France, Germany, Ukraine, and Russia on Sunday could become the first step towards such summit.
