Both Ministers called on all parties to respect the ceasefire and withdrawal of heavy weapons, requiring an unrestricted OSCE access to the points of conflict. It is necessary to set up working groups for the implementation of Minsk Agreements, of which the group for policy themes will have a highly important task of initiating the political process.
