The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic has noted with satisfaction that both the first and second round of voting in the Ukrainian Presidential elections were conducted in line with the internationally recognized democratic standards. The high turn out of the voters has clearly proved the interest of the people of Ukraine in the future of their country.
Now, it is first and foremost important that the internal situation in Ukraine remains calm and stable and the conditions are created in order to further carry on and speed up the process of the democratic reforms in the country.
Ukraine is an important economic and political partner for the Czech Republic and the Czech Republic stands ready to continue to develop its traditionally friendly relations with Ukraine and to support Ukraine on its democratic path towards prosperity and European values. The Czech Republic looks forward to the cooperation with a new Ukrainian leadership both on the bilateral level and in the framework of the Eastern Partnership initiative.
