Ukraine – Laurent Fabius’s participation in a ministerial meeting in the Normandy format (Berlin, November 6, 2015)


On November 6, Laurent Fabius will take part in a meeting on Ukraine together with his counterparts in the Normandy format (France, Germany, Russia, Ukraine).

A month after the summit of heads of state and government on October 2 in Paris, this meeting is aimed at taking stock of recent progress on the ground, and lending support to the political process under way.

The ceasefire in effect since September 1 and the withdrawal of light weapons, about to come to an end, have improved the situation on the ground. Discussions are continuing within the framework of the four working groups established to consolidate the security situation, improve living conditions for the civilian populations and implement a political process aimed at resolving the crisis, in accordance with the measures adopted in Minsk on February 12, 2015.
