The foreign ministers of Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine have made some progress at the Berlin negotiations dedicated to international efforts assisting in the settlement of the internal Ukrainian crisis, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"The ministers have analyzed the Ukrainian situation in every aspect and put an emphasis on the soonest end of the hostilities, border control, humanitarian deliveries to southeastern Ukraine and conditions for the soonest launch of the political settlement process," says a report posted on the ministry's Facebook page.
"Some progress has been made in each of these issues," it noted.
"It has been agreed to continue the dialogue in the same format in order to present concrete proposals to the leaders of Russia, Germany, France and Ukraine for their consideration," the report continued.
The foreign ministers, Sergei Lavrov of Russia, Frank-Walter Steinmeier of Germany, Laurent Fabius of France and Pavlo Klimkin of Ukraine, converged at the German Foreign Ministry's Academy. The meeting lasted for about five hours and ended early on Monday morning, Moscow time.
