MINSK, December 24. /TASS/. Meeting of the Contact Group for settling the armed conflict in Ukraine has ended in Minsk, a TASS reporter said in a dispatch right from the venue.
The talks continued for more than five and a half hours and the representatives of the negotiating parties refrained from any comments to reporters upon their completion.
The date of the next round of talks is still open to question, Denis Pushilin, the representative of the self-proclaimed unrecognized Donetsk People’s republic said.
Wednesday’s meeting of the Contact Group for settling the armed conflict in Ukraine was a preparatory one and its progress was marked by big difficulties, Denis Pushilin, the representative of the much-troubled unrecognized Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) at the negotiations told TASS.
He said the date of the next round of talks in Minsk was still open to question.
Vyacheslav Deinego, the representative of the Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR), confirmed that there was no certainty about the date of the next meeting.
“It hasn’t been decided yet,” he said.
Pushilin and Deinego refused to comment on the outcome of the talks that had lasted more than five and a half hours.
