Until then we have an agreement on OSCE movement, German Chancellor said
Ukraine could regain control of its eastern border with Russia only ‘at the end of the Minsk process', German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Wednesday after late Normandy talks in Berlin.
This is according to Ukrainian news agency Ukrayinska Pravda.
‘Ukraine will obtain full control of the border only at the end of the process, until then we have an agreement that OSCE may freely move towards the border. Sometimes it's possible, sometimes it's problematic, and the Russian president emphasized it', Merkel reportedly said.
The German leader also added that the issue of the armed OSCE mission should be brought up after the election process in Donbas is launched.
‘When a law on election will exist, and the process of the local election will be being prepared, then we could talk about the armed mission', Merkel said.
As reported earlier, the Normandy Four meeting didn't bring a breakthrough on the Donbas conflict, although the sides said some progress was achieved.
