"We don't stop this work. We had last Thursday held a meeting of experts in Brussels, which was considered, which made the proposal We, and a variant Made by their colleagues from the European brotherhood. We agreed that the second option is unacceptable, we will try to work with the first option, " said Ulyukaev in interview Business FM.
"1st case – is that We have prepared to draft a legally binding tripartite agreement between Ukraine, Russia and the EU, which concerns procedures for the implementation of the Treaty on the free trade area, would concern the introduction of transitional periods, on technical regulation, which concerns the exchange of customs information, validation of certificates of conformity concerning the speciality of sanitary and phytosanitary surveillance and so on," - said the head of the Ministry." And we did offer another option, where the only binding norm was the obligation of the Russian Federation to support the regime of zero tariff at the border line with Ukraine. No, none of the obligations in the proposals of the partners was not. This option is invalid for us ", - said the speaker." in November there will be another, maybe the last this year, the tripartite Ministerial meeting, where We have these we will draw the conclusions. If they remain here their approach and our proposals will not be accepted in a legally binding form (of course, with Some adjustments, We are open to discussions, open to adjustments of this package), in this case We introduce the mode of "most favored nation" in trade with Ukraine. That is, refuse to " preferential treatment ", - noted the head of the Ministry.
