"A regular meeting of the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG) took place in the mode of videoconference with the participation of the delegations of Ukraine and the Russian Federation and with the moderation of the OSCE. (OSCE coordinator in the humanitarian group) Toni Frisch stated the readiness of the parties to simultaneously open two new checkpoints in Luhansk region in the first decade of November implementation of the agreements of the Normandy Four summit in Paris in December 2019," the statement reads.

According to the Office of the President, in the TCG subgroup on security, the OSCE representative noted that political issues should be at the center of its work.

He also drew attention to the need for an updated mine clearance plan, which is especially important in connection with the approach of winter.

The Ukrainian delegation in the socio-economic group again raised the issue of the possibility of forming a group of experts under the auspices of the IAEA to monitor the storage of radioactive materials in the temporarily occupied part of Donbas.
