In a discussion between Ukranian President Victor Yanukovych and Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa today, Ukraine has decided that it will take part in exploration for oil in Sri Lanka.

This agreement was reached during a meeting between both the Presidents in Kyiv, Ukraine.
"We have agreed that the Ukrainian side will support our proposals to explore for oil in our land," President Rajapaksa said at a joint press conference with Yanukovych.

Yanukovych, in turn, confirmed Ukraine's interest in exploring and developing oil deposits in Sri Lanka. (Kyiv Post)

    BUGGER Thursday, 01 July 2010 08:33 AM

    I suppose india,china and the big oil companies are not interested in exploring because it will not be worth it

    A hot slap to Norway for taking Srilanka for a ride in the name of peace.

    What the relationship between Ukrainian and Russia like at present? It would serve Sri Lanka well if that relationship is strong and positive.

    Mr.President you have really explored the way of going ahead to face our enemies.

    Thisahamy Wednesday, 30 June 2010 07:07 PM

    We have been looking for oil since the '70s & still no oil! Is it only 'talk'?

    Mushi Wednesday, 30 June 2010 12:13 PM

    This is what is missing for all our corrupt politicians!!!

    I Hussein Wednesday, 30 June 2010 12:37 PM

    Mr Yanukovych, please explore their heads as well. Certaily you will find mud.

    Sanka-green alliance Wednesday, 30 June 2010 09:55 PM

    pasel Wednesday, 30 June 2010 12:50 PM

    How many countries are going fish for the oil?
    China India and now Ukrainian???

    roshan raz Thursday, 01 July 2010 05:40 AM

    you can trust anyone in the whole world except our politicos.
    it was china first and then india. now ukraine who else??

    MaPer Thursday, 01 July 2010 05:48 AM

    How many countries are going to be involved in oil exploration, off the coast of this tiny weeny Sri Lanka? First and foremost, is there really oil off our shores - or is this another bluff on the part of the government?

    MaPer Thursday, 01 July 2010 05:48 AM

    Will it be another white elephant - like the faulty Ukranian MIGs.

    Roshan Thursday, 01 July 2010 05:55 AM

    What happened to the contract with China and India for exploration of oil?

    Lankikaya Wednesday, 30 June 2010 01:22 PM

    Next disaster after the massive Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico?
    No Fish, No Corals, No Beaches, No Tourists, No GSP+

    RajasH Wednesday, 30 June 2010 01:22 PM

    Ukraine says they only support the proposal to explore oil....
    I want to explore oil too it is a facinating liquid engineering

    Raj Wednesday, 30 June 2010 01:26 PM

    All talk...no real action on the ground after these visits

    Concerned citizen Thursday, 01 July 2010 06:19 AM

    This is amazing and the pot is becoming even more hotter! We have Chinese spies among construction workers, Indian RAW already checking on the Chinese, Russian KGB and now the Ukraine oil explorers. Looks like we are making the Americans and the western powers extremely nervous.

    Murshid Idroos Wednesday, 30 June 2010 01:58 PM

    Excellent move mr president hats off to you please find an alternative for this western power blocs.Oil deposits are now proven to be in our maritime area

    Diluka Wednesday, 30 June 2010 03:01 PM

    As long as the Oil Exploration and eventually Extraction is done safely then Good. If it Leaks it will mess our Coastal areas and it can have devastating effects on the economy, Tourism(Beaches), Fishing, and our Fresh water ecosystems bound by the Lagoons etc.
