Ukrainian New Government to Expand Relations with   Azerbaijan – Ambassador

Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr K. Ramazanova / The new Ukrainian Government will expand its relationships with Azerbaijan, the Ukrainian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Stepan Volkovetski said to Trend.

"The new Ukrainian Government will contribute something new to the bilateral relationships and will strengthen the political and economic bonds," he said.

Ukraine's parliament on Tuesday endorsed a bid by Yulia Tymoshenko, fiery advocate of the 2004 "Orange Revolution," to become prime minister for a second time, according to an unofficial count made by Reuters. Tymoshenko, who confronted a powerful coalition led by outgoing prime minister Viktor Yanukovich, won 226 votes in the chamber, just the number required.

According to Volkovetski, neither Ukraine nor Azerbaijan has the forces to prevent cooperation between them.
