This was reported by a press release from the French presidency. During the virtual summit, attended by Prime Minister Mario Draghi, the heads of government also assured “their commitment to act to maintain peace and security in Europe”.
The Elysée added that the participants at the summit stressed the need for Russia to return to the negotiating table with Ukraine in the framework of the so-called ‘Normandy’ group, under the aegis of France and Germany.
