Meeting in Milan gives no results – Polish Foreign Minister

The Milan meeting of Presidents of Ukraine and Russia with participation of leaders of the European countries did not bring anything new.

Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna expressed this opinion, Polish Radio reports.

“For the EU it is not enough just to meet. The eastern policy should be well felt all the time. And Poland knows how to do it. Out role therein lies in searching for the key to the eastern door, but the key will not remain the same over the years. It must be polished and selected all the time,” Schetyna said.

According to him, the situation in Eastern Europe is very dynamic, no one could foresee such a development in Ukraine a year ago.

“But that does not mean that we should avoid looking forward. It is necessary to build the Polish foreign policy strategy, thinking not about the Vilnius Summit of November 2013, but about the Eastern Partnership Summit in Riga in November 2015,” the Minister stressed.

Earlier, commenting on the outcome of negotiations in Milan, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that during the meeting with Putin, both sides confirmed that the Minsk Protocol of September 5 and Minsk memorandum of September 19 are “the key documents that should guide any further action.”

Poroshenko stressed that the key elements are the ceasefire, practical steps to control it by “monitoring and verification of the ceasefire with the OSCE assistance.”
