WARSAW, February 12. /TASS/. The new Minsk agreement envisaging a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine from February 15 means that the issue of weapons supplies to Ukraine is no more relevant, the Polish foreign minister said on Thursday.
"The issue of arms supplies does not exist now as in two days ceasefire will come into force in Ukraine," Grzegorz Schetyna was quoted by his press secretary Marcin Wojciechowski as saying.
The Polish foreign minister also expressed hope that there would be no need of supplying Ukraine with arms as the sides now have to focus on "the peaceful settlement of the conflict."
Washington has been recently considering the possibility of weapons supplies to the war-torn Ukraine. US President Barack Obama earlier said the final decision had not been made yet but all options were being considered.
In comments to the results of the 16-hour long talks in the Belarusian capital, the foreign ministers of Poland and Hungary stressed the importance of the sides having "managed to end them [the talks] with success, but the key moment is to implement this agreement."
Earlier on Thursday, the participants of the talks on settlement of the crisis in Ukraine - Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande - agreed on ceasefire from midnight, February 15.
