Ministers insisted that the agreement to withdraw heavy weapons must be implemented.

German foreign minister Walter Steinmeier
called on the warring parties to come together:
“No one, neither France nor Germany can handle the situation, it has to be controlled by the parties involved. They have to put into practise the Minsk agreement themselves.”
