Chair A.Parubiy co-signs triple assembly’s articles, accomplishing thereby a two-year unremitting toil

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )

“Signing the articles of the Georgia-Moldova-Ukraine assembly has laid institutional foundation for our future relations, for our further movement, for our prospective triumphs,” – Andriy Parubiy

At the joint presser, the Chairman A.Parubiy noted that "the newly inked assembly's charter was preceded by long-term and hard work, and this was not only at a political level".

A.Parubiy reminded that during the meeting in Warsaw two years ago, the mutual understanding between the countries and the awareness of the importance and necessity of transferring the cooperation to an institutional level were quickly found. "It was not just periodic contacts, but there was created an institution that laid the foundation for relations between our states," said he.

The Head of Parliament stressed that "during that time a great deal of work was carried out by apparatuses of the three parliaments" and thanked "for the great efforts that were made and implemented so that we could reach the first meeting of this Inter-Parliamentary Assembly".

A.Parubiy reminded that Ukraine already has its own working experience in the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Ukraine-Poland-Lithuania, within the framework of which there “was created a joint military unit - a joint battalion, which helps today Ukrainian troops acquire European-level education and training, allowing the Ukrainian military to contribute to international security".

The Head of the Parliament expressed his confidence that in the relations between Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova "only the first steps are being taken, building the foundation and there are many tasks and goals ahead of us that we ought to achieve".

A.Parubiy stressed the necessity of coordinating joint actions and reminded of the urgency of creating a unified strategic centre for combating hybrid aggression.

The Verkhovna Rada Chairman noted that "speaking with one voice will be better heard when talking to partners from Europe and the USA". "And what is most important, I am convinced that together we will reach our strategic goal far sooner. This goal is membership in the European Union. In harness we carry out the ‘Eastern Partnership’ programme and we have to go through a series of very difficult and sophisticated reforms".

A.Parubiy called for coordinating actions and mutual consultations on reforms that are very similar in the three countries - "to reinforce each other so that we have a sense of not competition - who will be more likely to fulfill the task, and on the contrary – but cooperation and back-to-back support on our way to membership in the European Union". "I'm sure we will be able to go quickly and confidently through that way.  Mutual support, reciprocal assistance and unity are the key to success," said he.

A.Parubiy congratulated the heads of the parliaments and thanked everyone who had been involved in the creation of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly.
