New round of Ukraine’s talks with Turkey on signing FTA agreement will be held in spring – Economy Ministry
The next round of negotiations between Ukraine and Turkey on signing a free trade area (FTA) agreement will be held in spring this year, Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade, Trade Representative of Ukraine Natalia Mykolska has said at a press conference at Interfax-Ukraine.
"We had a video conference with the Turkish negotiating team. There will be another one in the near future. We expect the next round of negotiations to be held in spring," she said.
According to her, the last round of Ukraine’s negotiations with Israel on the issue of a FTA agreement was quite intense. The parties have advanced in negotiating the text of the agreement in part of tariff talks.
"If there was a great period of time between the last round and this one, the next rounds will be planned in a shorter term. We will negotiate until the deal is profitable for Ukraine and meets our interests," Mykolska said.
