Ukrainian, Moldovan economy ministries to discuss trade restrictions in coming days
Deputy Prime Minister and Economic Development and Trade Minister of Ukraine Stepan Kubiv and Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister of Moldova Oktavian Kalmyk have agreed that they will discuss the problem of trade restrictions.
"We've agreed that in coming days Ukrainian and Moldovan experts will meet for consultations on trade between the two countries and settling the problems we have today," Kubiv wrote on his Facebook page late on April 29.
He also said that Ukraine and Moldova enjoy friendly relations, including in the trade and economic areas.
"Ukraine has always supported Moldova on the international stage and received the same support from Moldova," Kubiv said.
Ukraine has urged Moldova to hold the talks on the trade restrictions on Ukrainian goods, and in the case of their failure has promised to introduce similar measures against Moldovan goods, Kubiv said earlier.
He said that the document on the introduction of trade restrictions by Moldova comes into force on the date of its publication and will be valid until the end of 2016. Kubiv also said that the document has not been published so far.
