Croatian Parliament Speaker says only talks can settle Ukraine conflict

Oslo - Participants in the European Conference of Presidents of Parliaments (ECPP) in Oslo have expressed different positions on the Ukraine crisis and therefore the talks should continue as there is no alternative to talks and to looking for common standards and values, Croatian Parliament Speaker Josip Leko said in a statement for Hina in the Norwegian capital on Thursday evening. 
Commenting on one of the main topics of the two-day Oslo summit -- constitutional rights and freedoms and trust, Leko said that democracy "is a permanent, unstoppable process involving everyone in decision-making."

"Different countries, different conditions and everybody is seeking paths to democratic standards that would be uniform for the European continent. The views are different and it is normal and good."

On the margins of the Oslo conference, the Sabor speaker met the new Austrian parliament chairwoman, Doris Bures.

On Friday, Leko is due to hold a speech on the topic of striking a democratic balance between the majority and the opposition.
