On Monday, December 22, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk met with President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev, who is paying a visit to Ukraine.

The Head of Ukrainian Government stressed the importance of the visit of the President of Kazakhstan to Ukraine to ensure further development of relations between the two countries.

He focused on two principal lines for cooperation between Ukraine and Kazakhstan - trade and energy, "These are [areas] where we can and must succeed."

"I am convinced that our bilateral cooperation should just enhance as presently the figures leave much to be desired. But if we take correct and clear decisions how to increase the volumes of our bilateral trade, it will just be advantageous for both Kazakhstan and Ukraine", said Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

Moreover, the PM reminded that Kazakhstan, like Ukraine, was a signatory to the Budapest memorandum, “I believe that we will pass all the tests. Ukraine will go through the ordeals connected with infringement of the territorial integrity. I believe that Kazakhstan will never gain the experience of the Budapest Memorandum, Ukraine had gained”.

"You have made the same step as we made. You are a strong, great and independent country. And the fact that we support each other in our territorial integrity and independence is of extreme importance for our two countries," said Prime Minister of Ukraine.
