KIEV, December 02, 1:15 /ITAR-TASS/. President Viktor Yanukovich will visit China from December 3 to 6 to sign about 20 documents there, Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said in an interview with one of Ukrainian TV channels on Sunday.
"About 20 documents are being prepared for signature, including a Treaty on Strategic Partnership," Azarov said.
"The People's Republic of China is the world's second poweruful economy. To us, partnership with China is a very good possibility for investments in our national economy," the head of government added.
Meanwhile, Vitaly Klichko, Member of Parliament and leader of the oppositional party UDAR (Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reforms), applied to the leadership of China in a request to give up meeting with Yanukovich.
"I am addressing the leaders of the PRC in a request not to play host to the head of state who is unable to resolve problems and is not in control of the situation back at home where a complete political crisis has set in. This now refers to a change-over of power in Ukraine. None of decisions to be made at the (prospective) meeting (in China) will be legitimate," pointed out Klichko who is quoted by his press service.
The politician believes that the planned visit to China "is an escape from a solution to the political crisis which has now set in in the country owing to the actions of the Yanukovich regime.
