President Victor Yushchenko met with Prime Minister Lee Hae-chan of South Korea, Presdient's press office reported.

In his opening statement, the Head of State said he was convinced the Republic of Korea and Ukraine could develop successful relations and stressed this visit was very important.

“It is time we turn the page in our relations,” he said.

At the meeting, the sides discussed a wide range of questions on bilateral cooperation between the two countries. They primarily spoke about ways to activate economic and technological cooperation. They believe the Ukrainian-Korean Trade Committee, which plans to hold a meeting in 2006, will help promote trade-economic cooperation. The Head of State said the commodity turnover rate could be considerably increased and thanked South Korea for rendering technical aid to Ukraine.

In his turn, Lee Hae-chan reassured the President that his country also wished to cooperate with Ukraine and said we could integrate our technological capabilities to build airplanes.

The sides agreed that, to activate our contacts, it was important to conduct a bilateral business forum.

This has been the first visit of the South Korean Premier to Ukraine since the two countries established diplomatic relations.
