Ukraine to preside over CIS in 2014
Ukraine is likely to chair the CIS in 2014, head of the CIS Executive Committee Sergei Lebedev told media in Minsk on Tuesday, RIA Novosti reported.
Ukraine was to preside over the CIS in 2013, but refused because it is chairing the OSCE in the same year.
"Ukraine has already voiced its desire to take the presidency in 2014," he said. "I know that the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry is generally working towards this."
"I am sure that most of the CIS countries will support Ukraine's desire," he said.
The CIS Executive Committee will support all Ukrainian ministries in preparation for its presidency," he added.
