KIEV, April 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s acting Foreign Minister Andrii Deshchytsia on Monday met Swiss President Didier Burkhalter, the incumbent OSCE chairman, to discuss the possibility of using the OSCE instruments in resolving the Ukraine crisis.
Didier, who is paying a one-day visit to Kiev, said Switzerland was ready to render assistance to Ukraine in settling the crisis on the bilateral basis and through the OSCE mechanisms. For his part, Deshchytsia told the OSCE chairman how Ukraine was preparing for the four-party talks, involving Ukraine, Russia, the European Union and the United States, to be held in Geneva this week.
The sides considered a possibility of using the OSCE potential for carrying out Ukraine’s constitutional and self-government reform. They also discussed proposals and recommendations prepared under the “National Dialogue” project that was launched in Ukraine this month.
