Ukraine will guarantee Russian gas deliveries to Europe

Ukrainian President &to=http://english.pravda.ru/cis/2001/04/27/4354.html' target=_blank>Viktor Yushchenko promised Monday that Ukraine will guarantee Russian natural gas deliveries to Europe, despite bickering between Moscow and Kiev over gas prices.

The European Union gets almost half of its gas imports from Russia, mostly piped through Ukraine.

"Ukraine has given a state guarantee that the transit will be secured, and this guarantee is unconditional," Yushchenko said, according to his office.

Moscow has proposed more than tripling the price it charges Ukrain for gas from the current US$50 (Ђ42) per 1,000 cubic meters, a proposal rejected by Ukraine.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
