Ukraine is interested in strengthening the role of the Council of Europe in the European political architecture, President Viktor Yushchenko told a meeting with members of the Verkhovna Rada Permanent Delegation in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, according to the presidential press-service.

"We back the leading role of the Council of Europe as a unique pan-European political forum that should maintain a leading role in the system of European institutes in the area of democracy, human rights and rule of law. The Council of Europe should remain the only source of lawmaking and Europe's main expert for human rights standards," Yushchenko noted.

President underlined that Ukraine's participation in the Council of Europe, including the activity of the Verkhovna Rada Permanent Delegation, is an important direction of the country's foreign policy.
