US conduct consultations with the European Union on the issue of Ukraine’s energy security, as declared US Assistant Secretary, Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs Daniel Fried Wednesday during the hearings of the House International Relations Committee Subcommittee on Europe and Emerging Threats.

“We share with our European friends and allies a strong commitment to Ukraine's sovereignty, continued democratic and economic development, and Euro-Atlantic integration,” he said.

“We are consulting closely with our European partners on the crucial issue of energy security of Ukraine and the region. We appreciate the principled position of a number of European states that energy markets should not be manipulated for political gain,” noted Fried.

US Assistant Secretary pointed out that they are also working with the Europeans to support free elections and civil society in Ukraine. “Ukraine’s politics are difficult, as politics in the early phases of post-communist political evolution tend to be, but we will work with Ukraine’s next government after its elections later this month, seeking to support Ukraine’s reforms and its European and transatlantic aspirations,” he stressed.
