Next Normandy format talks after Munich to be held in March - source
The ministers of Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany are planning to hold their next Normandy format talks in March following the Saturday meeting in Munich, a Western diplomatic source told Sputnik on Friday.
"After the meeting in Munich, the next one will be held in a month time, also on the sidelines of a big summit," the source said.
The source added that the next rounds of Normandy format talks are likely to be held regularly every month, most likely in line with the schedule of big international events.
The Normandy Four group was created in 2014 to secure a peaceful settlement of the conflict in eastern Ukraine. In February 2015, the quartet leaders' worked out a ceasefire deal in Minsk, Belarus, signed by representatives of the Kiev authorities and militias from the eastern Ukrainian Donbass region.
On Saturday, the ministers will discuss the deal implementation on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference.
