Hollande, Merkel call for rapid implementation of Minsk agreement| Reuters

PARIS French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to rapidly implement measures agreed under the Feb.12 Minsk ceasefire, Hollande's office said in a statement. Hollande said he and Merkel had spoken on the phone with Putin early on Friday afternoon and told him they want to see concrete results from four working groups that were set up on May 6 to deal with political, security, economic and humanitarian issues. The Kremlin said in a statement that Putin expressed concern in the call over "increasingly frequent shelling by Ukrainian forces of civilian objects that have led to civilian casualties." It added the leaders exchanged views on potential additional measures that could shore up the fragile ceasefire. #Economy #Sports #India #Technology #Middle East #Russia #Africa #Argentina #Mexico #Ukraine
