OSLO, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Establishing a constructive dialogue with Russia should become one of Ukraine’s priorities, Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende said on Friday.
Norway welcomes the formation of a new government in Ukraine and “its reform policy”, Brende added.
“We appreciate the new government’s determination to implement a number of important reforms,” he said. “Norway together with other members of the international community will furnish support for Ukraine. And we will also contribute to strengthening civil society institutions in that country.”
Earlier, Brende announced Oslo was ready to render financial assistance to Kiev.
“I am calling on the country’s new government to seek ways to overcome the current political crisis, guided by democratic values and respect for human rights,” he said. “These are also the rights of ethnic and linguistic minorities, which Ukraine as a member of the European Council is obliged to respect.”
