He noted that today's Ukrainian authorities must regain the trust of China to Ukraine, Joinfo.ua reports referring to Chinese TV channel CCTV.
"As a president and a prime minister I have always believed that China should be one of the main partners of Ukraine. Both in economy and in politics," said Kuchma.
According to Kuchma, Ukraine should be more interested in restoration of these relations than China, and therefore a partnership with China should be established as quickly as possible.
It should be recalled that by 2020 China plans to invest 500 billion to other countries. However, according to some experts, the war in the Donbas has dragged just because of the fact that China is pouring a lot of money in the Russian economy, thereby allowing Putin to pursue military aggression against neighboring countries.
