PARIS, June 22. /TASS/. A meeting of the Normandy Quartet’s leaders is scheduled for July, French government spokesman Stephane le Foll said on Wednesday.
"Another Normandy format meeting, as President Francois Hollande told the Council of Ministers today, is scheduled for July," le Foll said.
Earlier, the Kremlin said that for another meeting of the Normandy Quartet leaders there must be progress in the implementation of the Minsk Accords by Kiev, but it is not in sight yet.
As Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on June 21, "There must be considerable shifts in terms of compensating for the time lost, in terms of demonstrating the readiness for compliance with the Minsk Accords, on Kiev’s part first and foremost.
"Regrettably, Kiev has demonstrated no wish or readiness to make any tangible steps for the implementation of the Minsk Accords so far," he said.
