The development of the bilateral relations, especially in the interparliamentarian sector, was discussed in Beijing on October 24 during a meeting between the Verkhovna Rada's Committee for Foreign Affairs and Chinese Vice-Speaker Han Tside. The Ukrainian parliamentary delegation, headed by first deputy head of the committee Oleh Hrachov and comprising Oleg Bilous, Viktor Drachevskiy and VR Secretariat chief Anatoly Duda were invited by the Chinese Parliament Committee of Foreign Affairs.

During the meeting the parties discussed the matters of legislative activity in China and Ukraine and its influence on the countries' economic development, as well as new forms of interparliamentarian cooperation. The parties reached an agreement on establishing an Interparliamentarian Commission, consisting of 20 deputies, 10 from each party. There also will be two vice-speakers. This institution is a specific authority, which will operate permanently and which will hold meetings once a year in each country, successively. Within the framework of the commission, working groups on bipartite cooperation will be established. Ukraine has already established similar working groups with Russia, Belarus, Poland and Lithuania, the Cabinet's press service reported.

The parties noted that 2005 was very successful for development of interparliamentarian relations between Ukraine and China. In April 2005 the Verkhovna Rada's Speaker Volodymir Litvin visited China and in July the Chinese delegation made a trip to Kyiv. The parties also noted active cooperation between the interparliamentarian groups of friendship, which operate within the legislative authorities of Ukraine and China.
