President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych met in Astana with OSCE Secretary General Marc Perrin de Brichambaut.

The parties have discussed preparation for the chairmanship of Ukraine in the OSCE in 2013.

The Ukrainian President expressed hope this work will be productive. "We always treat the undertaken commitments responsibly. We have a professional team with high level of discipline. We have already begun preparing people and institutions for the OSCE chairmanship," Viktor Yanukovych said, expressing confidence that the preparatory process will be conducted at the highest level.

Speaking of the plan of preparation for the OSCE presidency of Ukraine, the President also reminded that in 2012 our country will be hosting the UEFA European Football Championship finals. The infrastructure being developed now can be used for OSCE activities too.

From his part, the OSCE Secretary General congratulated the Ukrainian side on the success in achieving chairmanship of the Organization.

"The fact that such state as Ukraine will chair the OSCE is a good sign for our Organization. Your morning speech at the Astana Summit has been worthy of a leader, whose country will chair the OSCE. It was all-embracing and ambitious," Marc Perrin de Brichambaut said.
