OSCE Advocates Continuation Of Democratic Processes And Economic Reforms In Ukraine

European organisations express their concern over the current political situation in Ukraine and also believe that the democratic processes and economic reforms will be continued in that country. A statement to this effect was adopted Friday at the enlarged session of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly (PA) held in Copenhagen. The PA OSCE General Committee for democracy, human rights and humanitarian issues also joined this statement. OSCE calls on the Ukrainian parliament "to find an adequate solution to the political situation so as to enhance the process of the country's democratisation and step up the process of reforms launched by the country's government." The statement also calls on the Ukrainian president to make use of his constitutional powers and act as guarantor in ensuring the development of democracy, protection of civil rights and the freedom of speech. Apart from this, OSCE and the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly propose that different branches of state authority and the opposition in Ukraine should find ways for achieving general accord so as to avoid further aggravation of the political and social crises in the country.
