Kiev, September 18 (Itar-Tass) - Changes in the Ukrainian economy following the forthcoming signing of the Association Agreement with the European Union should open new prospects for cooperation with the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia along with other CIS countries, Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said on Wednesday.
“There are no provisions in the agreement which can prevent us from expanding cooperation with the Customs Union and other partners outside the European Union,” said the premier. He added that a schedule had been approved for agreements with the Customs Union to be considered at government meetings. “The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine was charged with coordinating work on adjusting our economy to the EU free trade zone and the Customs Union,” Azarov said.
He added that details of cooperation in this new economic environment would be discussed with the Belorussian government during his official visit to Minsk at the beginning of October.
