No agreement on Normandy Four FMs' meeting in Munich reached yet - source in Russian delegation

MUNICH. Feb 16 (Interfax) - An agreement to hold a Normandy format meeting on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference has not been reached yet, a source in the Russian delegation told Interfax.

"As soon as there is information that the parties agreed to hold it, we will confirm it," the source said.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said earlier that the foreign ministers of the Normandy Four will hold negotiations on Friday evening or Saturday.

"This is due to the German side's logistics issues. German Foreign Minister [Sigmar Gabriel] will not arrive in Munich until late at night. I am ready for a meeting even at three in the morning," Klimkin said.

Consultations are currently underway, he said.

The French Foreign Ministry's political director will represent France at the meeting, Klimkin said.
