MOSCOW, December 24, 1:19 /ITAR-TASS/. Key issues of bilateral cooperation and large Russian-Ukrainian projects will come into the focus of talks between Prime Ministers Dmitry Medvedev of Russia and Nikolai Azarov of Ukraine.
“Fundamental aspects of bilateral cooperation in trade, the energy sector, lending and financial policies, science, technologies, humanitarian issues, and culture, as well as important industrial and infrastructure projects will be the subject of these talks,” the Russian government’s press service said.
Nikolai Azarov arrives in Moscow on a one-day visit Tuesday to attend a session of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council at the level of heads of state.
“Azarov will take part in the session of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council and in informal contacts with the heads of delegations participating in it,” a spokesman for the Ukrainian cabinet told Itar-Tass in Kiev.
President Viktor Yanukovich of Ukraine said last week Ukraine hopes to get an observer status at the Eurasian Economic Union.
“We filed a written application in August and we propose to consider Ukraine’s participation in the capacity of an observer,” he said.
