Poroshenko not to allow revision of obligations undertaken by Ukraine to obtain visa-free travel with EU – Tseholko
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko considers the decision of the Verkhovna Rada Committee to exclude the so-called anti-discrimination norms from the draft of the new Labor Code erroneous and assured the European partners that this initiative would not find support for its implementation.
"The president will not allow revision of Ukraine's obligations, which we implemented to get visa-free regime [with EU]. The president considers the decision of the parliamentary committee to exclude the so-called anti-discrimination norms from the draft of the new Labor Code erroneous and even provocative," Sviatoslav Tseholko, press secretary of Ukrainian president wrote on his Facebook page on Monday morning.
According to him, the Ukrainian president assured the partners through diplomatic channels that such a position of the committee would not find support either in the Verkhovna Rada or, even more so, on his part.
"Ukraine fulfilled, fulfills and will fulfill all its obligations," a message says.
