EU ministers to meet protesters, opposition
KIEV Feb 21 (Reuters) - European Union ministers will hold new talks with Ukrainian opposition leaders and representatives of anti-government protesters on Friday, in an apparent new effort to secure an agreement to resolve the country's crisis.
The Ukrainian authorities had expected a deal to be signed at noon (1000 GMT) but the signing did not take place.
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier was heading for new talks, diplomatic sources said, and Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said he and Steinmeier would meet representatives of the protesters.
