BRUSSELS, February 12. /TASS/. EU’s Foreign Policy Chief Frederica Mogherini said Thursday the EU summit would not discuss new sanctions against Russia.
The EU summit opened in Brussels on Thursday three hours later than planned because its participants had to wait for the return of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande from Minsk.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko met EU Council President Donald Tusk and EU Commission President Jean Claude Juncker ahead of the summit’s opening.
Jean-Claude Juncker positively assessed the results of the Minsk talks in the "Normandy format" on Ukraine crisis settlement. Speaking about the results of the talks he called them "a sign of relief for Europe".
The ceasefire in eastern Ukraine will be implemented starting February 15, and heavy weaponry will be withdrawn.
