France seeks to intensify "Normandy format" in cooperation with OSCE – Macron

French President Emmanuel Macron once again notes the need to activate the "Normandy format" in cooperation with the OSCE, including the development of the Minsk process.

The French president said this at a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Monday in Paris, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We are really determined to continue the Minsk process. We support the idea of intensifying cooperation in the "Normandy format" with the participation of the OSCE. This is what I propose to all parties," the French leader said.

At the same time, Macron has said that as of today the priority is not to start negotiations in a new format but to continue the implementation of the existing Minsk agreements.

He has once again noted France's support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including the non-recognition of the occupation of Crimea by Russia.
