Under any conditions the Ukrainian gas transmission system (GTS) will remain in national property in line with the national legislation, Ukraine's Deputy Foreign Minister Konstiantyn Yeliseyev said this after the talks in the European Commission dedicated to preparation of the donor conference on modernization of the Ukrainian GTS.
The diplomat voiced hopes that a text of the final declaration of this international forum due in Brussels on April 23 would reflect such a principled position of the Ukrainian party, UKRINFORM  reports from Brussels.

Yeliseyev noted that Ukraine along with European partners had been readying this conference since 2006. At the same time, the January gas crisis has helped the international forum on modernization of the Ukrainian GTS gain a political dimension in addition to a particularly investment and economic content.

“It is of great importance for us that the conference be the first one among other such events. It should prove that, against the background of new projects, in particular, the South Stream or the North Stream, the Ukrainian GTS was, is and remains a strategic, component part of the common European transit system. In our opinion, this is what the importance of this conference lies in,” Yeliseyev underscored.
