Foreign Minister Vadym Prystayko has said that Ukraine is ready for a reasonable compromise at the upcoming Paris summit of the Norman Four heads of state.

"We hope that we will make real progress at this meeting, which we have been expecting since 2016, when the last meeting in the Normandy format took place," he said at a briefing with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Tuesday.

"We are going to a Normandy meeting with open ideas. We are ready to make a reasonable compromise and bring home the progress that we have been striving for for a long time," Prystayko added.

The Normandy Four heads of state last met in Berlin in autumn 2016.

After taking office, new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has been seeking a meeting with Russia's Vladimir Putin to find a peaceful solution to the war in Donbas.

Earlier today, Zelenskyy said that he would like to discuss specific terms for the de-occupation of Donbas and an exchange of prisoners.
