'The foreign ministers discussed the current issues of the agenda of the Ukrainian-Romanian inter-state relations. The sides agreed to work out the joint document on the implementation of the new law 'On education', particularly the Article 7 that concerns the use of the languages in the education process', the message said.

As we reported earlier, the new law on education was signed by Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko on September 25. In particular, it implements 12-years-long school program and allows teaching languages of national minorities only in specially created classes in Ukrainian schools.

Ukrainian government voluntarily sent the law to the Venice Commission for further evaluation.
