During his official visit to Switzerland, Dmytro Razumkov, Chairman of The Verkhovna Rada, met with Isabelle Moret, Chairman of the National Council of the Swiss Confederation, and her deputy.
According to the press service of the Verkhovna Rada, the parties discussed the possibilities of expanding the Ukrainian-Swiss cooperation. Razumkov informed that a parliamentary group on inter-parliamentary relations with Switzerland has already been formed within the Ukrainian parliament.
"It is important that active engagement has now begun at the level of embassies and at the level of parliamentary friendship groups. We have many promising areas for joint work, in particular, in the area of implementation of reforms," Verkhovna Rada's Chairman said.
He also thanked Switzerland for the effective economic cooperation that exists between the states. The speaker also thanked Moret and her deputy for their willingness to continue and expand inter-parliamentary relations, and invited representatives of the Swiss parliament to visit Ukraine.
"You are the locomotive of attracting investments into Ukraine. We are glad that Switzerland is in the top five of our largest investor countries, and we hope that friendly parliamentary relations will strengthen economic relations and, as a result, will increase the volume of investments," Razumkov emphasized.
As we reported earlier, newly-appointed Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba noted that Ukraine would continue following the EU and NATO, as he stated on his Facebook page.
“…The course of Ukraine in foreign policy remains unchanged. It, particularly, means that we continue moving in the EU and NATO,” Kuleba noted.
