Ukraine Has Yet To Receive Formal Invitation To Summit In Normandy Format, Stands For Endorsement Of Road Map Of Minsk Agreements At Summit

Ukraine has not received a formal invitation to the summit in the Normandy Format (Ukraine, Germany, France, and Russia) and considers the summit expedient only for endorsement of the "road map" of the Minsk agreements.

This is said in the comments of the Presidential Administration provided to Ukrainian News Agency.

"As at October 11, Ukraine has not received a formal invitation to the summit of 'Normandy Four'," read the comments.

The comments read that the work in the Normandy Format has been accelerated recently at various levels, including at the level of experts, to prepare the summit aiming at coordination of the "road map" for implementation of the Minsk agreements.

"Ukraine supports the initiative of the summit of leaders of Ukraine, Germany, France, and Russia to endorse the document at the summit. The holding of the event for resolving the so-called 'political components of Minsk' is unacceptable," read the comments.

The Presidential Administration emphasizes that any political decisions can be made only after obvious progress in the issues of security.

"The road map" of the implementation of the Minsk agreement should envisage the order of execution of political conditions and security conditions with clear guarantees of their execution.

The comments also read that President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during recent contacts with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President of France Francois Hollande discussed various dates for the summit in the Normandy Format in Berlin.

President Poroshenko has stated more than once that Ukraine stands for an active dialogue in the frames of the Normandy Format in order to accelerate the peaceful resolution of the situation in Donbas and restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity and sovereignty through provision of proper execution of the Minsk agreements by Russia.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine does not rule out that the summit of the Normandy Format (Ukraine, Germany, France, and Russia) can take place in October 2016.
