MINSK, April 29. /TASS/. Including the US in the Normandy format may have a positive effect on reaching peace and stability in eastern Ukraine, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said on Wednesday.

"[If] Americans get involved - there [in Ukraine] will be peace," Lukashenko said.

The Normandy Quartet got its name from the first meeting in this format in June 2014 during D-Day celebrations in northern France. In February 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed the Minsk accords on the settlement in Ukraine.

The Minsk agreements envisage ceasefire in Ukraine’s south-east, heavy weaponry withdrawal, prisoner exchange, local elections in Donbass and constitutional reform in Ukraine.
