Ukraine is interested in finding a reputable partner from the European Union or the United States in line with a world practice for the joint management of Ukraine's gas transmission system. The Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine agency.
"I would like our country to work with a strong player in the European gas market. Therefore, we are keen on finding a serious authoritative European or U.S. partner for the joint management of the GTS. Our European partners are interested in receiving gas, and we are interested in ensuring transportation volumes, so we are both interested in joint management," Volodymyr Groysman stressed.
The Head of Government also denied possible disputes in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine regarding the issue of joint management. The Parliament in case of receiving of the corresponding proposal should approve the mechanism of interaction. "Why should Parliament disagree? I understand that there are those who always oppose. But if we are talking about uniting our efforts with an authoritative international partner with a worldwide reputation and creating a joint management of GTS what is wrong here? The whole world cooperates in this way", the Prime Minister underscored.
