Ukraine wants to take part in transportation of energy carriers to Europe. Prime Minister of Ukraine Victor Yanukovych said Sunday in an interview to Inter channel.

“Undoubtedly we set a task to be an effective player of the market of energy carriers. We’d like to be not only a transitor of energy carriers to Europe, but to take part in the process – to participate in production of energy carriers in Russia and countries of Caspian region, as well as in other countries, like Egypt,” Yanukovych underlined.

“Prime Minister of Egypt made himself clear as regards this question, and that is why we must show that we can be partners not only in producing gas and oil fields, but in transportation through Israel, Syria, Turkey to Europe, what means to Ukraine too,” the Premier added.

As a reminder, Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych said at a joint press conference with Prime Minister of Egypt Ahmed Nazif in Davos that Ukraine is ready to participate in construction of transport corridor from Egypt to Europe, to sum up his meeting.

“We face a good prospect of creation of the transport corridor "Egypt - Syria - Palestine - Turkey - EU". Ukraine is very interested in participation in the project,” Viktor Yanukovych stressed.

He also noted the sides discussed oil extraction in Egypt.

According to Viktor Yanukovych, the sides agreed to hold a sitting of the intergovernmental commission "Ukraine-Egypt".

In turn, Egypt offered Ukraine to secure technical part of possible export of energy-carriers from Egypt to Europe. Egypt also offered Ukraine to participate in joint projects on gas supply to Europe.
