MINSK, May 31 (Itar-Tass) - The signing of a memorandum between Ukraine and the Eurasian Economic Commission will help discuss vital issues for trade and economic cooperation at the level of diplomats, heads of state and government, Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said on Friday.
“This memorandum will help us at the preliminary stage to study solutions pending in the Customs Union. I emphasize vital importance of our interaction with the Customs Union as this is 40 percent of our trade turnover,” he said.
After the document is signed, “a Ukrainian representative will be able to attend meetings of the union’s member-states,” Azarov said.
“We will choose who will represent Ukraine. Now several candidates are being considered. Such a specialist must be a professional in trade and economic cooperation with the CIS member-states and the Customs Union and this is the main requirement,” he said.
