"I want to thank OSCE representatives and all international observers for their assistance in conducting transparent democratic elections in Ukraine. We are also grateful for your recommendations made after the elections. Election results reaffirmed the commitment of Ukrainians to European democratic values," Azarov said, Ukrinform reports.

At the same time, he said that Ukraine was continuing to implement economic reforms that meet European standards, as well as reforms aimed at expanding democracy, in particular, as part of the implementation of an action plan on the signing of the Association Agreement with the EU.

The prime minister noted that Ukraine was interested in intensifying the dialogue with the OSCE. "Our meetings have become a good tradition. I'm sure that they will last as Ukraine holds OSCE presidency and we're interested in maintaining constant active dialogue with representatives of the organization," Azarov said.

Azarov said that Ukraine, during its chairmanship of the OSCE in 2013, would take a balanced position when considering the most pressing issues put on the agenda. He said that Ukraine's main priorities would be comprehensive measures aimed at resolving the Transdniestrian conflict, ensuring energy security, combating human trafficking, and implementing projects on the disposal of surplus weapons, etc.
