CoE welcomes Kyiv deal - secretary general
BRUSSELS. Feb 21 (Interfax) - The Council of Europe (CoE) welcomes the agreement reached in Kyiv to resolve the political crisis, CoE Secretary General Jagland Thorbjorn said in a statement.
We are ready to forthwith take upon ourselves to provide help in order to achieve the objectives reaffirmed in the agreement, in particular, by providing legal and constitutional expertise on the subject of a constitutional reform through the CoE Venice Commission and the International Advisory Group which will oversee the inquiry into the recent acts of violence. I am expecting the Group to begin its work in Ukraine as early as next week, he said.
