“The priorities of Ukraine’s Chairmanship – protection of children’s rights, promotion of human rights and the rule of law in the context of democracy and stability in Europe, as well as the strengthening and development of local democracy – fully correspond to the 'core business' and values of our Assembly,” today stressed PACE President Mevlüt Cavusoglu, at the opening of the PACE Standing Committee in Kyiv.

The Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Volodymyr Lytvyn also addressed the parliamentarians, who held an exchange of views with the Ukrainian Minister for Foreign Affairs Kostyantyn Gryshchenko, Chairman of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe for a six-month period which began on 11 May 2011.
