KALUGA, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine is not yet ready to say what it thinks about the Customs Union [of Russian, Belarus and Kazakhstan] but wants to enjoy possibilities of the free trade zone agreement in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said on Tuesday the 10th meeting of the economic cooperation committee of the Russian-Ukrainian interstate commission.

“We are not yet ready to voice our concrete opinion (of the Customs Union) but let us use those possibilities that we have under the free trade agreement,” he said. Ukraine, in his words, is studying the Customs Union as an integration association.

As for bilateral relations between Ukraine and Russia, Azarov said the two countries had many tasks, such as the development of the aircraft-building sector, engine-building and rocket-building, etc. “Why shouldn’t we build a good rocket together?” he noted.

At the same time, he stressed that these issues “have nothing in common” with his country’s plans to sign an association agreement with the European Union.
