The upcoming state visit by Chinese President Hu Jintao to the Ukraine will usher in a new era in bilateral ties by further promoting bilateral cooperative relations, Ukrainian ambassador to China Yuriy Kostenko said Tuesday.

Kostenko made the remarks at a press briefing on President Hu's upcoming visit. Hu will pay a state visit to the Ukraine from June 18 to 20, the last leg of his Asia and Europe tour, which also takes him to Kazakhstan and Russia.

During his visit, Hu will hold talks with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and meet with other Ukrainian leaders, Kostenko said.

The presidents of the Ukraine and China will sign a joint communique to comprehensively develop the Ukraine-China strategic partnership as well as a series of cooperation agreements in sectors including trade, energy and infrastructure-building, Kostenko said.

The Ukraine and China respect each other's core interests and share each other's major concerns, and bilateral cooperative relations have yielded substantial results, he said, adding that both sides hope to promote the relationship to a new high.
