A European Transit Concept will be formed at the Energy Summit due in Kyiv in May.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, he claimed this, speaking at the opening of “Bullying the Bears” IV annual international conference, organized by Concord Capital investment bank.
The President stressed that Ukraine would like to play a special role at the European energy market. “Ukraine has a unique opportunity to transport energy carriers, the Europe’s biggest transit network belongs to Ukraine. We would like to unite markets of producers, consumers, and to indicate that Ukraine is an integral part of the European energy market”, he said.
Victor Yushchenko stressed that Ukraine is interested not in bilateral relations between countries, but in multi-lateral. The aim of the state is to form a new view on the concept of energy market of Europe.
“We would like that the Ukrainian component be an integral part of the European market, and work equally for the supplier, as well as for the consumer”, the President stressed.
He stressed that “Ukraine is ready to play this role, and will speak for forming a transit concept at the Energy Summit. The concept must integrate the European energy market”.
“I’m convinced this forum will go down in history”, Victor Yushchenko said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Energy Summit will take place in Kyiv on May 22.
