President Viktor Yanukovych believes that the Commonwealth of Independent States is a good platform for effective trade and economic cooperation between Ukraine and other countries. "The CIS is an excellent platform for meetings and dialogue with the countries Ukraine is traditionally linked with by trade and foreign economic relations," he said in an interview to Ukrainian journalists in Dushanbe after the CIS Summit.

The President noted that it would be desirable that these relations were developing more actively, though even in its current format the CIS is useful for its member states.

President Yanukovych recalled that international legal framework between the CIS countries has been forming actively during last 20 years, which allows today to solve many issues. However, according to the President of Ukraine, the CIS countries now lack a Free Trade Area Agreement, which would operate on the principles of the WTO.

Viktor Yanukovych also noted the importance of cooperation between the CIS member-states in sector programs, innovative technologies. "We should have access to the developments, where science is better. We all are interested in this. The exchange of innovative programs should also be resolved soon in our intergovernmental agreements," the President said.

As a result of CIS Summit in Dushanbe, Ukraine signed seven documents.
