KYIV. Dec 7 (Interfax) – The United States Vice President Joseph Biden has stressed the need for Ukraine to make important political decisions in the context of its obligations to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The parties talked about the very important implementation of Ukraine’s obligations to the IMF with the aim to continue the assistance, Biden said at a briefing held jointly with Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko in Kyiv on Monday.

These obligations require important political decisions not only from the Ukrainian president, but from Rada too, said Biden, while acknowledging that tackling the lack of economic progress, which has gone on for 20-30 years, is not an easy thing to do.

Biden said that the U.S. will support Ukraine on this track and be its ally in dealing with the IMF.
