Monday, January 21, 2019
Germany and France are willing to monitor ship traffic through the Kerch Strait, Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Friday in Kyiv. Fresh from meetings in Moscow, he said that Russia “must permanently ensure freedom of passage” through the Kerch Strait to the Azov, a binational sea. In Moscow, Russia’s Foreign Minister Lavrov told reporters that President Putin had agreed last month to a proposal by German Chancellor Angela Merkel for German experts to monitor the strait.
