"What the United States hopes to see is a Government and a Cabinet which is clearly committed to sustaining the significant progress that already has been made on reform. It's clear from the news this morning that there continues to be an active debate inside the factions and inside the Rada over who should compose the new Cabinet, but even more important than the "who" is the "what." That is, what will be the program of reform to sustain momentum with the IMF, to continue progress in implementation of reforms associated with the EU Association Agreement," Pyatt stressed.
