Ukraine is proposing the European Union to study closer the possibility of participation in the project for the construction of the White Stream gas pipeline, Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko said at a press conference in Brussels, following her meeting with European Commission member Benita Ferrero Waldner, Cabinet press office reported.

"There is the Nabucco project, but we would like to propose attentive consideration of the White Stream project, as well. This project could be much more effective if Ukraine and the European Union act as partners in it,"  Tymoshenko says, who supports construction of a gas pipeline that would supply Turkmen gas to Europe across Ukraine.

Tymoshenko emphasized that, in discussing energy questions with Ferrero-Waldner, they reached absolute mutual understanding. "We well realize our mutual interest in building a powerful system for diversification of energy carrier deliveries," Tymoshenko stated.

She also informed about the agreement reached on the creation of a sponsor group that would finance reconstruction of Ukraine's gas transportation system for natural gas delivery to Europe.
