Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak had a phone conversation with political advisers to the leaders of the "Normandy Four" countries.
The parties paid special attention to the issues of security, achievement of a permanent and comprehensive ceasefire and access of the OSCE SMM to the territories of Donbas not controlled by Ukraine.
They also discussed preparations for the forthcoming video conference of the Trilateral Contact Group, where Ukraine will have a significantly expanded representation, including Deputy Prime Minister - Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories Oleksiy Reznikov, Deputy Ministers and MPs - chairmen of the Verkhovna Rada committees.
"I believe that expanding and increasing the level of representation in the TCG will help improve the ceasefire regime. That is why Ukraine will be represented by the Deputy Minister of Defense at the next TCG video conference,” Andriy Yermak stressed.
