PARIS, July 13. /TASS/. The Ukrainian leadership should engage in dialogue with the western regions [the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk — TASS] on decentralization, spokesman for the French Foreign Ministry Romain Nadal said answering a question on France’s attitude towards the Ukrainian authorities’ initiatives on decentralization.
"The draft constitutional reform is currently under discussion in the parliament. France believes that Ukraine’s leadership should conduct dialogue with the eastern regions on decentralization," he said.
Nadal recalled in this regard the statement of French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius who said: "The Minsk agreement states that decentralization and the institutional changes should be carried out with a view to providing greater autonomy to Ukraine’s eastern territories."
