KIEV, October 3 (Itar-Tass) — Many “sensitive” issues in relations between Ukraine and the United States will be resolved after the parliamentary elections in Ukraine scheduled for October 28, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said.
Speaking at a meeting with foreign diplomats on Wednesday, Yanukovich said, “The United States is a strategic partner of Ukraine. After the parliamentary elections many ‘sensitive’ issues will be resolved in relations between Ukraine and the U.S.”
According to the president, European integration is a priority for Ukraine. “If all reforms in Ukraine are toughly linked to European standards, the priority task is to sign an Association Agreement with the EU and promote visa liberalisation. The work in this aspect continues,” he stressed.
At the same time, he noted that Ukraine’s European aspirations should not play down the importance of other vectors of the country’s foreign policy, including cooperation with Russia.
“Relations with the Russian Federation will be a priority trend,” Yanukovich pointed out, adding that Ukraine also sought to develop relations with such countries as China, Brazil and India.
