    Leaders of Russia, France and Germany agreed on Friday to hold a new round of Ukraine reconciliation talks at the level of deputy foreign ministers on June 10 in Paris, the French president's office said.

    PARIS (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin, French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel discussed the implementation of Minsk peace accords in a conference call earlier on Friday.

    "The next meeting on Minsk accords in the 'Normandy Four' format will be held in Paris on June 10 at the level of deputy foreign ministers/political directors," Hollande's office said in a statement following the call.
