Macron says Normandy Four summit to ensure security in Europe

French President Emmanuel Macron has stated that the upcoming Normandy Four summit in Paris will ensure confidence and security in Europe.

He stated this at a press conference following a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Paris on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We are working on this with Chancellor Merkel. We will hold a Normandy summit on December 9 in order to implement the Minsk accords. I am sure that we will strengthen European sovereignty and build a new architecture of trust and security in Europe," Macron said.

He noted that he meant stability, which would ensure the absence of frozen conflicts, in particular in Ukraine.

As reported, the next summit with the participation of the leaders of Ukraine, France, Germany and Russia (the so-called Normandy Four) is to take place in Paris on December 9.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said earlier that he intended to raise at this meeting the issue of specific terms of Donbas de-occupation, the return of hostages, the resolution of the security situation, and the holding of local elections.
