The Verkhovna Rada should focus on adopting European integration laws, despite domestic political changes in the country. These bills will bring our country closer to the European Union and will improve the living standards of Ukrainians.
Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze stressed during the Government sitting.
"On the part of the Government, we will insist on supporting by the Ukrainian parliamentarians of the bills awaiting consideration in the Verkhovna Rada. In this way, we will fulfill our obligations to our citizens and will prolong our advancement towards rapprochement with the EU", said the Deputy Prime Minister responsible for relations with the EU and NATO.
Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze reminded that the responsibility for the continuation of the European and Euro-Atlantic course of the country rests, first of all, with the Cabinet of Ministers and the Parliament. Legislators and ministers must therefore rigorously fulfill their obligations.
"Our consistency and predictability are fundamentally necessary and critical. We need to maintain a strong relationship with the EU and the North Atlantic Alliance and continue our work on the priorities that are linked to European integration", added Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze.
The Deputy Prime Minister urged colleagues to focus on the implementation of the Roadmap for legislative implementation of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, adopted at the end of 2018. The document contains a list of 57 bills to be considered by the Parliament during two years.
