The implementation of the Minsk agreements and the possibility to deploy the UN peacekeeping mission in Donbas will be discussed at the Normandy Four meeting at the level of foreign ministers on June 11.

"Minister Heiko Mass will meet with the colleagues from Ukraine, France and Russia at the Villa Borsig on Monday... Two topics will be in the spotlight: the review of the Minsk agreements, in particular how to give new impetus to them, and the UN mission in Donbas, which will be discussed at such a level for the first time," German Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Adebahr said at a briefing on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to her, the issue of peacekeeping mission – its mandate and area of location – is still controversial to Ukraine and Russia. The foreign ministers of the Normandy Four countries will have to find out how to narrow the gap between the parties.

Adebahr stressed that sustainable truce, removal of heavy weaponry and steps towards the implementation of the Minsk Agreements are necessary prerequisites for moving forward.

The meeting will start at 18:30 Berlin time. The last Normandy Four meeting at the level of foreign ministers took place in February 2017.
