Ukraine intends to continue its strategic partnership with Azerbaijan, Ukrainian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Alexander Mishchenko said at a press briefing on Wednesday in connection with the 21st Anniversary of the establishment of bilateral relations.
"To date 125 documents have been signed between the two countries with about five documents of an interdepartmental character under consideration," Mishchenko said.
He said last year trade turnover amounted to over $900 million which reflects its growth compared to previous years.
It is planned to hold the next meeting of the intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation in the near future, Mishchenko said.
Ukrainian companies according to the ambassador, plan to participate in projects during preparation for the first European Olympic Games to be held in Baku in 2015. Participation issues will be considered at the next meeting of the intergovernmental commission, Mishchenko said.
Also according to the diplomat, bilateral visits are planned.
"Preparation is underway for the visit to Azerbaijan in the first half of the year of OSCE chairperson-in-office, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara," Mishchenko said.
