Yanukovych: Kyiv could sign package agreement on cooperation with Customs Union in '3+1' format

Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has called for closer relations between Ukraine and the Belarusian-Kazakh-Russian Customs Union.

"I believe the further development of relations with the Customs Union will rest on a new legal basis regarding free trade agreements and possibly a package agreement on cooperation by a 3+1 formula," Yanukovych said in an annual address to the nation he presented at the Verkhovna Rada on Thursday.

The president said this will help pursue a course toward closer ties between the European and Eurasian economic areas.
