He assured U.S. officials that President Viktor Yushchenko's decision to dissolve parliament and call early elections is legal.


Yatsenyuk met with Rice on May 1 for talks focusing on energy security, ways to resolve so-called frozen conflicts, and Ukraine's bids to join NATO and the World Trade Organization.
