BRUSSELS, Feb 20 (Reuters) - German, French and Polish foreign ministers are staying in Ukraine for more talks aimed at resolving the crisis there and are no longer expected to come to Brussels for an EU foreign ministers' meeting on Thursday, diplomatic sources said.

The three ministers had been expected to fly to Brussels to brief their colleagues on their talks with the Ukraine government and opposition, but one EU source said: "We don't expect them here any more."

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said earlier she had been in touch with the three ministers and would brief the other ministers on what they said.
