Prime Minister of Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko hopes that the Verkhovna Rada will shortly adopt the State Program of Privatization for 2008-2012, before adopting amendments to the state budget for the current year.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, Yulia Tymoshenko said this to a press conference in the Cabinet of Ministers today.

The Prime Minister stressed it is necessary to immediately adopt the privatization program for 2008-2012 in the second reading and as a whole.

“We hope it will be done in the nearest days. I hope we will be able to organize an efficient collaboration between the government, lawmakers, and parliamentary committees, on amendments to the state budget”, Yulia Tymoshenko said.

At the same time, she expressed doubt that amendments to state budget will be submitted to parliament next week, because this document must be thoroughly prepared.

Yulia Tymoshenko also noted she dreams about a peaceful collaboration of all power branches, and the recent results of work of power branches show it is quite possible.

“I will clench the beak as at the picture of Picasso, I will hold the olive branch of peace despite any storms. I believe we have all grounds and opportunities [for a constructive collaboration - UNIAN]. The government will never be a source of conflicts. But it will be a powerful source of introducing order into the country”, Yulia Tymoshenko said.
