Documents on granting Ukraine the observer status in the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan will not be signed during the visit of Viktor Yanukovych to Astana on May 28-29, advisor to the President of Ukraine Andriy Honcharuk told a briefing.
"In connection with certain assessments, appeared in the media on the links between the acquisition of the observer status in the Customs Union and certain concessions in the further development of the negotiation process concerning gas transmission system, I would like to say that these processes are not connected. The two negotiating processes are moving in parallel" he stressed.
He added that Kyiv hopes to agree upon a final version of the memorandum on granting Ukraine observer status in the CU. "It will be agreed upon. I ask you not to make mistake in this statement," he said.
Honcharuk expected the memorandum to be signed in the near future.
