Yanukovych and Nazarbayev agree on increase of transit of Kazakh oil through Ukraine

Ukraine and Kazakhstan have agreed to increase the transit of Kazakh oil through Ukraine by 8 million tons, President Viktor Yanukovych said at his joint press conference with President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev.

“We agreed that we would increase the transit of oil through Ukraine by 8 million tons, some of which can be used by Ukrainian refineries under a separate agreement,” Viktor Yanukovych said.

In turn, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev also made positive remarks about the negotiations on energy issues.

“Before Viktor Yanukovych stepped in, transportation of Kazakh oil through Ukraine has been suspended. Now, the restrictions are lifted and transportation is restored,” Nursultan Nazarbayev said.

It was also agreed that Ukraine together with Russia and Kazakhstan will produce nuclear fuel. “We agreed that Ukraine will participate in the development of nuclear fuel manufacturing base. We can speak of a trilateral agreement today that Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine will be taking part in this project with a share of 33% each. It is very beneficial for our countries,” Viktor Yanukovych stressed.

President: We should unite our security building efforts

“We are facing new security challenges today, which suggest that we should unite our efforts on a range of security issues,” President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych said at the press conference after the Ukrainian-Kazakh negotiations.

The President of Ukraine expressed the opinion that the Summit of Heads of OSCE Member State, scheduled to be held in Astana in December, “will, probably, open a new page” in such a cooperation.

“Construction of new security architecture in Europe is one of the questions to be discussed, ” Viktor Yanukovych said.

The President also said that when Ukraine takes presidency over the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe in 2013, it would appreciate Kazakhstan’s experience in that matter.
