KIEV, September 23 (Itar-Tass) —— The upcoming visit of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich to Moscow is unlikely to yield a deal on the price of Russian natural gas, according to Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Konstantin Grishchenko.
“Presidents Viktor Yanukovich and Dmitry Medvedev will first and foremost discuss cooperation in high-tech spheres, but not the gas price. As for the gas, we shall definitely agree on it even if it does not happen on Saturday, September 24. There are many options and Ukrainian proposals which take into account both the interests of Kiev and Moscow,” the foreign ministry press serviced quoted Grishchenko as saying on Thursday in New York where he attends the UN General Assembly.
He blamed the media for “fanning up the situation around the trip, but I am convinced there will be no sensations as the issues of the gas price or Ukrainian accession to the Customs Union are important but not the only issues in bilateral relations.”
“The president is going (to Moscow) with very serious positions and is ready for an open and equal dialogue to achieve an acceptable balance of interests between our truly strategic partner countries,” Grishchenko said.
