Merkel: Norman meeting will be held in Paris

Merkel called progress Steinmeier formula matching

The venue of the summit in the Norman format has already been determined, but the dates have not yet been announced.

The meeting of leaders of the Norman-format countries will be held in Paris, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday, October 2.

“We want to find a date to meet in Paris, this time it will be Paris,” Merkel said.

The chancellor called progress the approval of Steinmeier’s formula but said that it’s premature to talk about the possible lifting of sanctions from Russia.

“We have made progress, but many further steps are needed. This does not mean that we can already lift the sanctions, but there are prerequisites, and all parties today have confirmed that now a meeting can be held at the level of heads of state and government,” she said.

As reported, despite the approval of the Steinmeier formula, Russia said that the timing of the Norman Four summit would be determined only after the withdrawal of troops in the two areas agreed on the eve of the contact line in the Donbas.
