SOCHI, July 12 (Itar-Tass) - An economic cooperation committee of the Ukrainian-Russian Inter-State Commission will be held late in September - early October, Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said after a working meeting with Russian Premier Dmitry Medvedev in Sochi on Friday.
"We agreed that the economic cooperation committee of the Ukrainian-Russian inter-state commission which operates under the chairmanship of the presidents of Russia and Ukraine will hold its meeting in late September - early October,” Azarov went on to say.
“Until that time we are going to order appropriate ministries and agencies that deal with the matters that we discussed today to prepare draft resolutions and coordinate their stances,” Azarov emphasized.
The Ukrainian prime minister who was pleased with his talks with Medvedev said that they should meet each other more frequently to discuss problems that arise in a friendly atmosphere and try to find mutually acceptable solutions. “
We have made progress practically on all issues that we discussed,” Azarov stressed.
Azarov said that he and Prime Minister Medvedev had discussed cooperation in energy, space, innovations and aircraft building. They agreed to resume serial production of AN-124 Ruslan planes and facilitate customs and border formalities on passenger trains.
