KIEV, March 30 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine seeks to develop relations with its strategic partner Russia, but a European integration bid remains an invariable priority of its foreign policy, President Viktor Yanukovich said at a meeting marking the 20th anniversary of the National Institute for Strategic Studies.
“We must ensure in our policy ongoing development in relations with our neighbours, strategic partner – Russia, the European Union and the United States. However, our course aimed at European integration remains invariable,” Yanukovich said.
The president believes Ukraine must “get into the major league of most developed countries” and set an ambitious task of “uniting our European integration aspirations and plans of global partnership”. President Yanukovich also marked the importance of cooperation with countries of Eurasian and Asia Pacific regions.
