The dialogue between parliaments of the Normandy Four member countries needs to be continued; it would provide assistance to the Normandy Four leaders and bring peace to Ukraine. Viktor Medvedchuk, the Chairman of Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party said so during the meeting with French senators and MPs on January 23.
During the gathering, the official presented the "Parliamentary dimension of the Normandy Format".
"Today, we already know that some 40 senators and 26 MPs of the National Assembly of France support and are ready to join the initiative, which supposed creating an interfaction parliamentary union "Parliamentary dialogue for peace: Ukraine-Russia-France-Germany", he said.
According to Medvedchuk, it actually says that the presentation that took place on January 23, and the discussion that lasted for three hours became a satisfaction for all sides, and things were perceived with a huge interest.
"There were many questions (...) regarding our peaceful plan that we presented here in the French Senate, regarding what we think about the situation that occurred after the Paris meeting of the Normandy Four on December 9, and what's the government position here, and what are our evaluations and forecasts in terms of implementation of Minsk agreements and setting peace in the country. The interest is huge, and it surely makes us happy and inspires us. And we believe that the initiative that was registered in the Verkhona Rada (Ukrainian Parliament, - 112 International), the creation of interfaction lawmakers' union has the right to exist, and these ideas are of certain interest. This is the way it was during the meeting with the Head of the State Duma in Moscow (and we plan a meeting with State Duma MPs). And I believe, and I really hope that such responses and positive assessments of our idea (...) and the necessity to bring peace will be observed, specifically, in Berlin, when we meet with Bundestag MPs", he said.
According to Medvedchuk, such meeting is slated for the next week.
