KIEV, August 22 (Itar-Tass) - The Executive Committee of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) is ready to help clear customs complications between Ukraine and Russia, says an official letter of the CIS Executive Committee published on Thursday.
“The CIS Executive Committee is aware of Ukraine’s concern with facts of the tightening of customs control over traditional exports. Unilateral introduction of customs restrictions contradicts the agreement on the establishment of a free trade zone by the CIS countries,” the Ukrainian government’s press service quotes the document.
“The CIS Executive Committee pointed out that Ukraine has a right to address the Economic Court of the CIS and raise the matter with the expert commission of the member countries,” the press service notes.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov on Wednesday called on the partners in the Customs Union for a fair use of trade rules on the basis of the provisions of the World Trade Organization and the operating agreement on a free trade zone among the CIS countries. “We must be ready to comply with these rules, too,” Azarov said.
Customs complications with Ukrainian goods arose because of Ukrainian exporters and customs bodies shortcomings, Azarov added.
