Merkel wants more observers in Ukraine, Putin agrees- German govt

BERLIN, March 16 (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel told Russian President Vladimir Putin more Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) observers should be sent to Ukraine, a plan he welcomed, Merkel’s spokesman said on Sunday.

“The chancellor proposed swiftly expanding the existing OSCE presence in Ukraine and sending a bigger number of observers into hot spots, especially in East Ukraine,” Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a statement about a phone call between the two leaders.
