BERLIN, April 14. /TASS/. The talks of the Normandy Four in Berlin have confirmed that the positions of Moscow and Kiev on the crisis in eastern Ukraine differ, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said after the meeting on Tuesday.
"We had an intense and a sort of contradictory conversation. It showed differences in the opinion of Kiev and Moscow," the German foreign minister said, adding that the meeting confirmed that nothing is easy in the Ukrainian crisis.
"This will be a long way but if we do not go this way, the situation may run out of control," he said.
Steinmeier said Ukraine has agreed to appoint its representatives in the working sub-groups as part of the trilateral Contact Group.
"We agreed that finally four working groups will be set up. I assume that the names of the representatives will be announced at the next Contact Group meeting. Ukraine has also promised to do this," he said.
All this "may help improve the humanitarian situation in the country’s east and restore infrastructure," the minister said.
