Ukraine is interested in developing cooperation with Azerbaijan in gas and oil refining industries, Ukrainian President's official website reported.
President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych made this statement during an informal meeting with the Club of Chief Editors of CIS countries, Baltic States and Georgia.
