The Ukraine is interested in cooperation with Azerbaijan in the field of gas supply, chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament Vladimir Litvin, who is in Baku on an official visit, said on Thursday.

"Ukraine is interested in developing cooperation in the gas energy sector, the receipt and transportation of this strategic source of energy. We need to ensure provision of gas and a rational, reasonable price" Litvin said.

Litvin said the opportunities for the transportation of gas and the construction of an appropriate terminal for the liquefaction of natural gas is required in Ukraine. At the same time, Ukraine will take part in the construction of the Trans-Anatolian gas pipeline, designed to ensure adequate supplies, he said.

"We have experience of work in complex soil conditions. We also have a relevant company," he stressed.

Litvin added that the Ukrainian side has a strong interest in participating in the construction of large facilities such as stadiums and sports facilities.

"We are interested in the construction of large structures such as stadiums, sports facilities. It is planned to build such facilities worth nearly $1 billion in Azerbaijan. If Ukraine is interested, it would be very advantageous cooperation," Litvin said.
