Ukraine is satisfied with success in trade and economic relations with Azerbaijan, Miroslav Blashuk, the head of the trade representation of Ukraine in Azerbaijan said. According to Azerbaijani State Statistics Committee, in January 2010, trade turnover between the countries amounted to about $72 million.
"Azerbaijan, which is economically developed even in the difficult times, has done much in this direction," Blashuk said at a press conference in Ukraine Embassy to Azerbaijan.
Blashuk stressed the fruitful cooperation with Azerbaijan in the field of oil supplies to Ukraine. According to him, in 2010 200,000 tons were delivered for processing at the Kremenchug oil refinery.
The cooperation of Azerbaijan and Ukraine in the scientific and technical spheres was emphasized by the first secretary of the Embassy Arthur Danilenko. There are strong relations between Azerbaijan and Ukraine in the scientific sphere, Danilenko said. "Thousands of students from Azerbaijan study in Ukraine," he said.
According to Danilenko, an important step in cooperation between the countries became the tender on putting the first Azerbaijani telecommunications satellite into the orbit. Probably, the satellite will be put into orbit just by Ukrainian carrier rocket Zenit SLB, he said.
