KIEV, January 27, 19:20 /ITAR-TASS/. Issues for the talks between the government and the opposition “have been determined”, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara told Itar-Tass.
“The parties showed interest in discussing certain issues. The talks are going rather dynamically. President Viktor Yanukovich has offered premiership to opposition leader Arseny Yatsenyuk and the post of vice-premier to Vitali Klitschko,” the minister said.
The Ukrainian opposition said it was ready to continue talks with the authorities to settle confrontation, the National Resistance Headquarters said in a statement on Monday.
“Despite the authorities’ policy towards wrecking the talks and imposing a state of emergency, the opposition is ready to continue talks in order to prevent further escalation and bloodshed,” the statement says.
In the past 24 hours reconciliation and calm are kept on Independence Square, the Headquarters said, adding that the leadership of the country should realize “people’s patience can stop at any moment”.
“Now the parties are discussing measures to offer an amnesty to all participants in protest actions, to make amendments to the Constitution, as well as the composition of the Central Election Commission and laws approved by the Verkhovna Rada on January 16,” Kozhara said, adding that the laws were to toughen responsibility for taking part in extremist actions.
“All issues are being studied thoroughly. Corresponding proposals can be submitted to an extraordinary session of the Verkhovna Rada slated for tomorrow,” Kozhara said.
