MOSCOW, December 23. /ITAR-TASS/. Key issues of cooperation and major projects will be in the focus of talks between Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Ukrainian counterpart Nikolai Azarov in Moscow on Tuesday, December 24, the government’s press service reported on Monday.
“The talks are expected to focus on key issues of trade, economic, energy, monetary, scientific, technical, humanitarian and cultural cooperation, the implementation of joint industrial and infrastructural projects,” the press service said.
Azarov will arrive in Moscow on a one-day visit to take part in a session of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council (EEC) at the level of heads of state.
“Azarov will have informal meetings with heads of delegations, which take part in the session,” a source in the Ukrainian government told Itar-Tass.
Earlier reports said Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich would take part in the session.
Last week Yanukovich said Ukraine hoped to get an observer status in the Eurasian economic union. “In August we gave a written application saying we proposed to discuss Ukraine’s observer status in the Eurasian union,” the Ukrainian president said.
