According to President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, the leaders of Ukraine, France, Germany, and Russia have agreed at the talks in Paris on Friday that the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission would have access to the rest of the occupied territory in the Donbas.

"The first entry: OSCE should now have unimpeded access to the entire occupied territory and access to the border," he told reporters after the meeting.

The President of Ukraine said that the OSCE monitoring mission, which will operate in the east of Ukraine, will be expanded.

"In order to perform its functions efficiently, it was decided to increase the number of OSCE monitors, to expand mission's mandate and one more very important thing was added - we have agreed that mine clearance process will be launched under the auspices of the OSCE with the support kindly provided by Germany and France," Poroshenko said.

"I have put a special focus to fundamentally unacceptable facts of electronic warfare against OSCE using systems delivered from Russia. They directly conflict with Minsk agreements. We have agreed that the OSCE monitoring tools will have unobstructed access (to the entire occupied territory)," Poroshenko informed.
