Foreign Minister of Germany, Sigmar Gabriel, was “very pleased” that Russian President Vladimir Putin “said that it would continue the negotiations on the requirements that in the past, Russia has rejected”. This is with reference to the reaction of the head of the German foreign Ministry says the Associated Press.
According to the German diplomat, Putin’s statement was his “surprise”.
“More importantly, this proposal for the UN peacekeeping mission in the East of Ukraine shows that Russia’s foreign policy has undergone changes, and we must not miss this chance. It will be good if we perceive it as a willingness to talk about new ways to defuse tensions,” – said Gabriel.
