MOSCOW (AP) — Germany says the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, Germany and France have agreed that a mechanism needs to be set up to oversee a cease-fire in Ukraine and monitor the securing of its border with Russia.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert said the four leaders also agreed in a telephone call Wednesday that hostages held in eastern Ukraine should be freed without delay.

Observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe have been held in Ukraine for weeks.

Seibert didn't say how a cease-fire oversight mechanism might work but said talks between Russia, Ukraine and the OSCE should continue.
