Energy Blackmail Oftenly Used in Contemporary World: Victor Yushchenka
Ukraine, Kiev, 23 May /corr. Trend Z.Novosvitski / Such understanding as energy blackmail is oftenly used in the contemporary world, said Victor Yushchenka, President of Ukraine, in his speech during the opening ceremony of the Energy summit in Kiev.
"The examples of energy pressure have become almost permanent case of the contemporary life," Yushchenka said. "The tendencies in the Eurasian zone make us responsible to jointly plan actions which would prevent threats and challenges with regards to energy security," the President said.
In addition, Yushchenka suggested four questions for discussions: implementation of agreements reached during the previous summits, especially regarding the process of realization of Eurasian oil transportation corridor on the basis of Odessa-Bordy oil pipeline; national strategy and projects on energy security; establishment of Balto-Black Sea-Caspian energy territory; EU policy on energy security.
