"The Chancellor will discuss with Trump, the new administration, the implementation of the Minsk agreements," he said.

A senior official of the Chancellery noted that the cooperation of the EU, as well as Germany and France as participants in the "Normandy format", with the U.S. has been always close regarding this issue and he expressed confidence that it would be the same.
