With a high probability of meeting “Norman Quartet” on the sidelines of the Munich security conference will not take place.
The meeting of foreign Ministers in the format “Norman Quartet” was under threat. This was reported by sources in the Ukrainian delegation.
The reason for the failure of negotiations lies in the busy schedule of the foreign Ministers of Ukraine, Germany and Russia, who can’t find time to meet. At issue is the possible meeting between Pavlo Klimkin and Sigmar Gabriel.
Note that the meeting “Norman four” had planned to hold on 16 February, but the Minister of foreign Affairs of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel, was forced to urgently leave for Berlin. So the negotiations were cancelled.
The Ukrainian diplomat stressed that they are ready to meet in “Normandy format”, if the opportunity arises.
