KIEV, December 07, 21:25 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said on Saturday that Russia and Ukraine had prepared a roadmap for restoring full-fledged cooperation.
“We have already prepared a roadmap for restoring full-fledged cooperation,” the government’s press service quoted Azarov as saying.
“I hope that all major disputable issues were resolved at yesterday’s talks,” Azarov said referring to the recent talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich held in Sochi.
“The two presidents gave priority to industrial cooperation between Ukraine and Russia. We have always paid great attention to these problems and we are close to solving them. The talk is about cooperation of our leading machine-building enterprises in the nuclear and aviation spheres,” Azarov clarified.
“Preparations for the final and concluding stage of gas negotiations were another vital topic for discussion,” Azarov added. He noted that the presidents had not signed any documents in Sochi. The Ukrainian prime minister also confirmed that the Customs Union had not been part of the agenda of the Yanukovich-Putin meeting.
“I categorically deny any rumours or speculations on this subject,” Azarov said. He stressed that Yanukovich’s talks with President Putin dealt exclusively with industrial cooperation, trade and economic relations and gas issues.
The Ukrainian prime minister regretted that opposition politicians and mass media had given false and provocative assessments with regard to the content of the Ukrainian-Russian summit meeting.
