President promises no changes in foreign policy
If Tarasyuk resigns from post of Foreign Minister
Victor Yushchenko told reporters on Tuesday a progress report Foreign Minister Borys Tarasyuk has to submit to the Verkhovna Rada would not result in any revision of the country’s foreign policy, according to the President`s press-office.
“I do not see the current circumstances, including the reports by the Foreign Minister and the Defense Minister, in the context of revisions of the foreign course,” he said when asked how he would implement his foreign policies if Tarasyuk was dismissed. “My position on the issue is unalterable: the ministers’ reports entail no changes in the foreign course.”
The President added he had repeatedly said he supported these two ministers, who “stick to the course based on the legal documents and the political program that helped him win the presidential race.”
