He noted that it was the desire to create the most favorable conditions for the adoption of a law, as the project is still at the stage of writing needs to be agreed between the various political forces.

“My offer still stands. However, if in the beginning of next week I will see progress within seven to ten days prepare and submit the relevant draft law”, — the President warned.
