German President: “Steinmeier formula” is an attempt to transform big steps into relatively small ones

“Steinmeier formula” is an attempt to transform big steps into relatively small ones, – the President of the Federal Republic of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier responded to reporter’s question at a joint press conference after the meeting with Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili in Tbilisi

To the question “what influence Russia had on developing this formula and what was your involvement” Steinmeier answered “No influence”:

“There wasn’t any influence from Russia. Three years ago in Paris, this was the Normandy format, negotiations began, but projects that had to be implemented under the Minsk agreement had not yet been implemented. The formula is an attempt to transform the big steps into relatively small steps, to make it easy to implement”, – German President said.
