"We do not see due compliance [with the agreement - ed.] by the Donetsk and Luhansk [terrorists - ed.], as well as by the Russian side. There is no complete withdrawal of heavy equipment by the "DPR" and "LPR". There is also no efficient monitoring of this process by the OSCE observers in a number of areas of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions," he said.
However, the ministers have registered progress in general. "We continue to notice certain progress in the implementation of Minsk deal at the local level," Fabius said, adding that much more efforts need to be made. The foreign ministers intend to discuss this issue in Berlin during next meeting of the Normandy Four on Monday, April 13.
"I am very glad that four ministers intend to meet on Monday to discuss the cease-fire situation, withdrawal of troops, as well as Ukrainian initiative to strengthen Minsk cease-fire deal and achieve real de-escalation," Klimkin said.
