Simferopol (QHA) - Formed during the presidency of Leonid Kuchma board of representatives of Crimean Tatar people was absolutely the right decision; moreover it should’ve remained so today. This was said by former president of Ukraine Leonid Kuchma during his visit to Crimea yesterday. “The decision to form a board of representatives of Crimean Tatar people taken at that time was absolutely right. I don’t know what led to another decision. Authorities should continue dialogue with Mejlis of Crimean Tatars. This should be done on a regular basis. There are a lot of issues to be solved at the highest level”, said Kuchma. Former President also supported the idea to hold the International Forum of Crimean Tatars.
