Normandy Four summit date hasn't been determined yet - Ukrainian FM

KYIV. Sept 13 (Interfax) - The date of a meeting of the Normandy Four member state leaders is still being determined, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said.

"Such meeting [of the Normandy Four member state leaders] was planned for the near future and three parties [Germany, France and Ukraine] were generally ready for this meeting. Indeed, the information published in the media is being confirmed. The French president offered to host it in Paris indeed. We planned to hold it really fast, we wanted to gather and we were ready to [...] on September 16, I don't think it's a big secret," Prystaiko told the Inter TV channel on Friday evening.

"But, to our great regret, the Russian side was unable to attend the meeting at this time. We are now actively picking another time. I think the place will remain the same, Paris, and we're picking a new time for this meeting," the Ukrainian foreign minister said.
