Foreign allies will continue to make efforts to speed up the process of restoring Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity no matter how long it takes, said German Chancellor Angela Merkel during her speech in Aachen, Germany, Ukrinform reports.
"We know that it often takes a long time to solve international conflicts but we will continue our efforts to ensure the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine,” she assured at the annual ceremony to present the Charlemagne Prize to French President Emmanuel Macron for offering "a vision of a new Europe."
Trilateral negotiations with the participation of Merkel, Macron and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko took place in Germany. On Thursday, President Poroshenko held talks with the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk.
