NATO PA spring session in Kyiv postponed due to coronavirus

The spring session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, which was scheduled for May 22-25 in Kyiv, has been postponed to a later date due to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on European Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze said this in a comment to Ukrinform on April 2.

“After the first January meeting of the organizing committee to prepare and hold the NATO PA spring session, the work was continued in the working group, however, in connection with the spread of coronavirus, we began to receive signals from the International Secretariat of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly that not all countries are ready to send their delegations to the spring session. And recently, the International Secretariat announced a decision to postpone the session to a later date,” she said.

Klympush-Tsintsadze assured that the postponement of the NATO PA spring session does not mean that it will not take place in Kyiv at all. At the same time, the MP was unable to predict when the session would be held in Ukraine.

As reported, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a resolution “On Holding Spring Session of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in 2020” on April 25, 2019, which provides for the creation of an organizing committee to prepare for the session.

In April 2017, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly supported the initiative of the Verkhovna Rada to hold in Ukraine a spring session of the Assembly, which is scheduled for May 22-25, 2020.
