KIEV, August 19 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and Germany’s Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel had a telephone conversation Monday night, in the course of which they expressed conviction that following the four-partite talks at the level of foreign ministers in Berlin an attempt to tap a solution to the crisis in Eastern Ukraine should be made at top level, the presidential press service said.
“Poroshenko thanked Merkel for her efforts in the interests of peace settlement in Donbass (the way that the country’s eastern Donetsk and Lugansk regions are typically called - Itar-Tass),” it said.
Also, the Ukrainian President thanked the German government for assistance in establishing international dialogue and for the organization of the four-partite conference of German, Ukrainian, French, and Russian Foreign Minister August 17.
Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke to reporters about the results of Sunday’s conference in Berlin. He highlighted progress in a number of areas, including the deliveries of Russian humanitarian aid and assuring of control over the Russian-Ukrainian border.
However, it is too early yet to speak about any formalization of the results of these highly complicated talks. The ministers will relate their impressions on the meeting to the presidents of their respective countries and will continue debates in the current format.
