MOSCOW, May 22. /TASS/. Subgroups of the Contact Group for settling the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine will have the next round of talks on June 2, Heidi Tagliavini, the plenipotentiary representative of the European security organization OSCE said on Friday.
She also said the subgroups were working fruitfully and helping the parties to the conflict fulfill provisions of the Minsk accords.
Tagliavini said the workgroups were doing their job fruitfully.
The plenipotentiary representative of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, Denis Pushilin, said the Contact Group as such will meet on the same day after the subgroups' meetings are over.
"The next cycle of meetings of subgroups is synchronized and all the four subgroups are expected to meet simultaneously on June 2," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying. "The contact group will meet on the same day."
Pushilin said the first meeting of political working subgroup ended with no consensus but the spectrum of issues is clear.
"The subgroup for political issues failed to reach consensus at its first meeting but the spectrum of issues is clear," Pushilin said noting that all issues in the working subgroups would be solved only on the basis of consensus.
Chief negotiator of the self-proclaimed Luhansk republic Vladislav Deinego said all four Contact Group’s subgroups are demonstrating positive dynamics.
A total of four work subgroups were set up on May 6 for the purpose of intensifying the peace process and efforts to fulfill several aspects of the Minsk accords.
The subgroups in charge of security, economic and humanitarian problems met on May 14 and May 19.
