PARIS (Sputnik) — "We are concerned about the tensions that remain locally and urge all the sides to adhere to the ceasefire regime, provided by the Minsk agreements, and we also ask them to guarantee total access to all areas to the OSCE monitors," Alexandre Giorgini said at a briefing.
Giorgini noted that France welcomed the agreement to fully observe a ceasefire regime during the upcoming holidays.
In February, representatives of the central government in Kiev and Donbass independence supporters signed a deal on Ukrainian reconciliation in the Belarusian capital of Minsk.
