PARIS, Sept 10 : The leaders of France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine on Wednesday agreed to hold an October summit on ending the conflict in Ukraine, as they welcomed reports that a truce in the east had been "generally respected since September 1", the French presidency said.
In a phone conversation that lasted for 90 minutes, Francois Hollande, Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin and Petro Poroshenko said everything must be done "to make this situation last and allow the OSCE special observer mission to have permanent, safe and unrestricted access" to the affected areas, the Elysee statement said.
While the Elysee Palace said the four leaders would meet in "early October" to hold talks on resolving the Ukraine conflict, the Kremlin said in its own statement issued after the phone call that the summit would take place in Paris in October 2.
Foreign ministers from the four countries will meet in Berlin on Saturday to come up with "concrete proposals" ahead of
the summit, the Elysee added.
Ukraine's army said earlier Wednesday that a new nine-day truce with pro-Russian rebels was holding despite small skirmishes that claimed the lives of two government soldiers this week.
The bitter foes agreed on September 1 to more strictly respect an often-broken February armistice agreed in Minsk.     ?AFP
