KIEV, November 21. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have agreed to organize a meeting of the Normandy Four foreign ministers, the press service of the Ukrainian president’s administration said on Monday after their telephone conversation.
"The sides discussed the work on a draft roadmap for the implementation of the Minsk agreements, in line with the results of the Normandy Four summit in Berlin. They agreed to organize a meeting of the Normandy Four foreign ministers in late November," the press service said.
According to Poroshenko’s administration, the sides "noted deterioration of the situation in the region."
Poroshenko and Merkel also touched upon the issue of visa liberalization with the European Union and preparations for a Ukraine-EU summit in Berlin on November 24.
Germany’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Martin Schaefer said earlier on Monday that a ministerial meeting of the Normandy Quartet on settling the Ukrainian crisis may be held in the near future. The work on the roadmap on implementing the Minsk peace agreements is underway "in a complicated way and slowly," he said. The leaders of Germany, Russia, Ukraine and France agreed at the Berlin meeting on October 20 that the document should be ready within a month.
