Davos: US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday he believed that with effort and good faith on both sides it would be possible to implement the Minsk agreements on Ukraine in coming months to allow for a lifting of sanctions on Russia.

Kerry said in a speech to the World Economic Forum in Davos that he and US Vice President Joe Biden had meet this week in the Swiss resort with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to help ensure full implementation of the Minsk agreements.
