President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko favors the development of mechanisms for the continuation of cooperation between Ukraine and the Customs Union countries after the signing of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. He said this during a meeting with Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov, the Cabinet’s press service reports.

"Ukraine made a sovereign decision, and we will find a formula to be together and to continue cooperation. We have a long way before us. We, the members of the Customs Union, should soon find the formula of cooperation under the new conditions," the President of Belarus said.

He stressed that even if Ukraine joined NATO, it would be necessary to continue the cooperation.

"I fully support Ukraine, and we will definitely find a formula to work together. We want Ukraine to be in the middle of the Common Economic Space integration processes," Lukashenko said.

In turn, Azarov agreed that cooperation should be continued. He noted that free trade areas with the EU and the countries of the Customs Union are extremely important for Ukraine.
