MINSK, October 20. /TASS/. Belarus welcomes any progress conducive to bringing peace to Ukraine, Belarusian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Dmitry Mironchik, told TASS on Thursday.
"We welcome any progress that would help end the bloodshed and move towards a peaceful settlement of the crisis in Ukraine," the diplomat said commenting on the latest Normandy Four talks held in Berlin.
According to Mironchik, the Normandy Quartet members noted that the Minsk agreements "are the basis of this process."
"We will do everything we can to make sure that the negotiators’ work in Minsk makes its own contribution to this process," he said.
Berlin earlier hosted a Normandy format meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko on the settlement in eastern Ukraine. No documents were signed at the meeting. Nevertheless, an agreement was reached on developing a roadmap for the implementation of the Minsk agreements. It is expected that this document will be drawn up and approved until the end of November.
