Ukraine still thinks that the 3+1 formula is the most acceptable mode for its cooperation with the Customs Union, Ukrainian foreign minister Leonid Kozhara has said.

"The 3+1 format is the most acceptable form of cooperation with the Customs Union for Ukraine, in which our state could participate by creating a free trade area (FTA) with the Customs Union and joining in some of its agreements in some spheres, taking into account interests of all sides, without exceptions," the minister said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.

He stressed that Kyiv is eager to expand its economic cooperation with the Customs Union and is continuing to seek the forms of cooperation that can satisfy Ukraine's national interests.

In addition, Kozhara said that the Customs Union should develop its relations with the European market. "Today it is a very specific economic issue for Ukraine. Our task is to create a basis for the real unification of the whole Europe. A visa-free travel regime and a joint free trade area could unite Ukraine, the European Union and Russia in future," Ukraine’s foreign minister said.
