MOSCOW, December 17, 23:32 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and Ukraine agreed to coordinate closer foreign political steps, Russian President Vladimir Putin said after a meeting of the Russian-Ukrainian interstate commission in the Russian capital on Tuesday.
The negotiators “also raised international issues,” he said.
“We agreed to coordinate closer foreign political steps, primarily over strategic stability and security in Europe and the counteraction to new global challenges,” the Russian leader noted.
The drug threat is among these issues, the president added. “The Russian and Ukrainian drug watchdogs agreed to cooperate closer and signed the document to this effect,” he noted.
The Russian Federal Service for Control over Circulation of Drugs and the Ukrainian State Service for Control over Drugs have signed a cooperation agreement upon the results of the interstate commission on Tuesday.
