Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has stated that Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan could create a grain pool within six months.

"We've discussed the term – six months," he said at a joint press conference with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev in Kaluga on Tuesday.

Earlier, Azarov said that Ukraine and Russia were planning to sign an agreement on the creation of a grain pool. Kazakhstan may become the third party in the grain pool.

The creation of the grain pool is intended to allow the coordination of the countries' trade policies on the international grain market, Interfax reported.

The issue of the need to create a Black Sea grain pool of Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan was first raised at the first World Grain Forum in St. Petersburg in June 2009.
