Ukraine's key priorities in foreign policy are solution of Donbas conflict and the return of Crimea. Vadym Prystaiko, the newly appointed Foreign Minister of Ukraine said this during the first plenary meeting of the new Ukrainian Parliament on Thursday evening.
He added that the priorities concerning Ukraine's EU and NATO aspirations remain unchanged.
"We need coordinated efforts, internal investments, activizaion of human resources for setting post-industrial production and the rapid increase of export. We need peace and stability - something that the war is stealing from us", Prystaiko said.
On August 29, members of the newly shaped Ukrainian Parliament gathered for the opening session of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. On the very first work day, they dismissed the previous government and shaped the new Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk. MPs also dismissed Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko and appointed his successor Ruslan Ryaboshapka. Eventually, they lifted the parliamentary immunity. That session began at 10 a.m. Thursday and concluded already on 2.30 a.m. Friday.
