Ukraine will participate in the Eastern Partnership summit to be held on November 28-29 in Vilnius, Lithuania and discuss the trilateral consultations with the European Union and Russia to restore the mutually beneficial cooperation in trade and economy, the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

This announced was made by Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, who said Ukraine and Russia will begin talks on develop a “road-map” of their relations  in December. 

The talks are particularly appropriate, given the interest of Ukraine, Russia and the European Union in a tripartite consortium to modernize Ukraine’s gas transportation system (GTS). “We never suspended negotiations on creating the consortium,” Edward Stavitsky, Minister of Energy and Coal Industry of Ukraine, said. Stavitsky emphasized that issue of changing GTS ownership is not on the agenda.

According to Deputy Prime Minister Yuriy Boyko, gas transit through Ukraine’s territory is reliable and performed in full accordance with the requests of Russia's Gazprom and the European countries. “Ukraine meets its commitments in full,” Boyko said. 

Experts say, establishing a tripartite gas transport consortium is a promising option of gas cooperation. It will take into account the interests of the supplying country (Russia), transit country (Ukraine) and gas-consuming countries (EU members).
