MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. A meeting of the Contact Group for Ukraine will take place given that all the sides in the conflict observe the Minsk agreements, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said in a Twitter interview on Friday.

Earlier, an advisor to the chief of Ukraine’s Security Service, Markian Lubovsky, said that Kiev viewed it as impossible that a new meeting of the Contact Group for Ukraine would be held in the Belarusian capital Minsk.

“There will be no Minsk-2,” he said. “We have Minsk-1 and its agreements that we should implement.”

On Thursday, Denis Pushilin, the envoy of the DPR at the peace settlement talks in Minsk, said that officials of self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics were ready to go to Minsk shortly and to take part in a meeting of the Contact Group for Ukraine.

“The pause in the activities of the Minsk group has obviously become too long and we don’t understand why Kiev is procrastinating with the dates and agenda of the meeting,” Pushilin said. “There’s a feeling Kiev is striving to bring the Minsk process to a full stalemate, in the conditions of which it would sever direct contacts with our republics.”

“Any attempts to settle the conflict without our republics won’t hold water and will inevitably drive the negotiations into a deadlock,” Pushilin said. He confirmed the republics’ commitment to the Minsk format, which presupposes the participation of Russia, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the DPR, the LPR, and Ukraine.
