POTSDAM, September 1. /TASS/. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has called for rebuilding lost trust between the West and the East, particularly in relations with Russia, ahead of the informal ministerial meeting of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) in Potsdam.
"We need an intensive debate at a time when there is no trust between the West and the East, between the West and Russia," he said.
In this context, Steinmeier pointed to the importance of resolving the Ukrainian crisis. "We will be talking not only about the conflict itself, but also about how we can rebuild trust after it has been lost," he said.
