KIEV, February 12. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s parliament has become the major anti-crisis centre that should ensure law and order in the country, speaker Vladimir Rybak said at a meeting with President of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Hugh Bayley on Wednesday.
Rybak told about measures that the Verkhovna Rada took to overcome the political crisis, the parliament’s press service reported.
The speaker backed the PA NATO president’s view on the need to show restraint by all parties involved in confrontation in Kiev and Ukrainian regions.
“All participants in the political processes continue the dialogue on key problems in order to reach broad anti-crisis consensus.” “We’ve started a process, which is aimed at settling the crisis due to the systematic nature of the political crisis. Particularly, the parties have started discussions on mechanism to debate amendments to the Constitution and a possibility to return to the parliamentary-presidential rule,” Rybak said.
Bayley thanked Ukrainian parliamentarians for their participation in the Assembly’s work. He praised restraint shown by the Ukrainian government and the Verkhovna Rada.
Restraint is very important for all parties, Bayley stressed, adding that the Ukrainian parliament was taking very important steps to settle the situation.
