MINSK, August 26. /TASS/. An envoy from the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) to the Contact Group on the settlement in eastern Ukraine, Denis Pushilin, has pointed to the need to boost the efficiency of the participants’ efforts in the Minsk negotiation process and impose sanctions for failure to comply with any previously reached agreements, Pushilin’s spokesperson Viktoria Talakina said on Friday.
"Accelerating the negotiation process depends largely on adopting the rules of procedure and the roadmap by the Contact Group. The rules of procedure will enable the systematization of the work by the Contact Group and its subgroups, record the agreements that have been reached and introduce penalties for the parties that fail to comply with certain provisions or reject previous statements and stances," the envoy’s press service quotes him as saying.
Pushilin is confident that "these mechanisms can significantly improve the efficiency of the negotiation process."
