WARSAW, March 8. /TASS/. Significant progress is needed to firm up the ceasefire in east Ukraine, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said on Wednesday before the talks with Polish counterpart Witold Waszczykowski.
"We will be holding talks with my counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow, focusing on how we can make progress in reaching a ceasefire in Ukraine," Gabriel said.
"It is painfully to see that, we meet (in the format of Normandy Four group - TASS), let’s say, on Saturdays or Sundays, and promise to one another that the ceasefire will come into force and then on Monday shelling continues," he said.
"We will be speaking about how more visible progress can be achieved in the process that unfortunately, has not yet had sufficient progress."
Russian and German foreign ministers, Sergei Lavrov and Sigmar Gabriel, will hold talks in Moscow on March 9.
