BERLIN, November 6. /TASS/. Foreign ministers of the Normandy Four states are planning to sign an agreement on demining the territory of the embattled Donbas region by the end of the month, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said on Friday following the Berlin talks.
"We decided to work out an agreement with technical schemes of the demining process," Steinmeier said. "The document should be signed before the month end."
