Prime Minister's statement to the media during the State Visit of President of Ukraine to India

New Delhi: December 10,2012

“I have great pleasure in extending a very warm welcome to His Excellency Mr. Viktor Yanukovych, President of Ukraine, on his first State Visit to our country. His visit takes place as we celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between India and Ukraine.


Ukraine’s expertise in defence technologies is well established and offers synergies with our own defence technology base. Our two countries are already undertaking a number of defence cooperation projects. The defence cooperation agreement that we have just signed establishes a new framework for expending this cooperation.


President Yanukovych and I have also exchanged views on nuclear energy and nuclear safety, where we can learn a great deal from each other. The unfortunate Chernobyl accident has given Ukraine valuable insight and knowledge in dealing with this critical issue. Through the Agreement that has just been signed between the nuclear regulatory authorities of both countries, we have agreed to share our experiences in nuclear safety and radiation protection. I also complimented President Yanukovych for his initiative to host the Kyiv Summit on Safe and Innovative Use of Nuclear Energy in April 2011 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident.


President Yanukovych and I have also exchanged views on regional and global issues. We also agreed to intensify our consultations in international forums. I have no doubt that this visit by President Yanukovych will set India-Ukraine relations on a firm course.
