BAKU, April 19 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukraine is interested in cooperation with Azerbaijan in the energy sector, speaker of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada, or parliament, Vladimir Litvin visiting the country told a briefing on Thursday.
“Ukraine is interested in the development of cooperation with Azerbaijan in the energy sector. This cooperation includes supplies of Azerbaijan’s gas because, first, we want to have guaranteed gas supplies, and second, we want to buy gas at reasonable, justified prices,” Litvin said.
Touching on practical aspects of gas supplies from Azerbaijan, Litvin said it would be expedient to build a gas liquefaction facility in Georgia. Apart from that, in his words, Ukraine needs to build a liquefied gas terminal.
Litvin also said his country was interested in the project of a Trans-Anatolian gas pipeline to be built by Azerbaijan and Turkey.
He also spoke about cooperation between the two countries in the construction sector. Thus, he said, Ukrainian companies might take part in the metro construction projects in Azerbaijan. “We have an experience of work in conditions of complicated soils. We have reliable companies,” he said.
Apart from that, according to Litvin, Ukraine is showing interest in the construction of sports facilities in Azerbaijan. “We are interested to take part in the construction of stadiums and other big sports facilities, and Azerbaijan plans to build such facilities to the tune of one billion U.S. dollars. If Ukraine is engaged, it will be mutually beneficial,” he stressed.
