German chancellor, Ukrainian, French, Russian presidents to hold summit to reboot peace efforts


German Chancellor Angela Merkel invites presidents of France Emmanuel Macron, Russia Vladimir Putin, and Ukraine Petro Poroshenko to hold a summit to reboot attempts to bring peace to eastern Ukraine.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Der Tagesspiegel via Euractive, Merkel has already spoken about the issue with France's new leader, Emmanuel Macron, who hopes to continue the work started by his predecessor, François Hollande.

No other conflict has occupied the time of Angela Merkel more than the war in Ukraine. The Ukrainian army has been fighting Russian-backed separatists in the east of the country for nearly three years.

Germany and France tried to act as mediators at an early stage. But agreements brokered in Minsk in 2014 and 2015, which laid the foundations for the peace process, have still not been implemented.
