MOSCOW, December 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Visiting Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich urged the participants in a meeting of the Russian-Ukrainian interstate commission to do a large amount of work to resolve the issues on the bilateral agenda.
“I am convinced that a large amount of work is in store for us. All issues, which are on the bilateral agenda, are mutually beneficial and vital for our economies,” Yanukovich said at a meeting of the interstate commission on Tuesday. “Therefore, I see as the main goal to work out a further plan of concrete actions,” Yanukovich said.
The Ukrainian president recalled that he had discussed many issues in an eye-on-eye meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. The meeting between the presidents last more than 2.5 hours. “And now we should sum up the results of the work in a broad format,” he said. “It is very important to determine why some agreements had not been reached,” Yanukovich noted.
He named “economic cooperation between the two countries as a basis for co-operation.” “We have prepared a roadmap plan, which will help improve the indicators in the trade sphere,” Yanukovich recalled.
“The fulfilment of this action plan will deepen considerably strategic partnership in many trends and will break the deadlock in the projects, which we had launched, but they had protracted,” he believes.
