PARIS, August 19. /TASS/. A meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin may be held after the August 24 talks in Berlin between the German, French and Ukrainian leaders, French government spokesman Stephane Le Foll said on Wednesday.

"It is not ruled out that the meeting in Berlin will be followed by the meeting in the Normandy format," the spokesman told reporters after the session of the council of ministers.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said earlier the trilateral meeting between Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande will be held on August 24 in Berlin to discuss the situation in Donbas.

Berlin meeting on Ukraine means no change in Normandy format

German deputy government spokesperson Christiane Wirtz said the upcoming meeting of German, French and Ukrainian leaders due in Berlin on August 24 means no change in the Normandy format.

"As for this meeting, it will be held in a trilateral format which does not mean however the creation of a new form of dialogue," she said.

The German government has voiced concerns over the new escalation of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, Wirtz said. "Both sides should implement the Minsk agreements," she added.
