AFP , Sunday 23 Mar 2014

Ukraine's interim premier Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Sunday he has cancelled plans to attend a major summit in the Netherlands next week to hold talks with an IMF delegation in Kiev.

"I have cancelled my trip to The Hague (to)... continue negotiations to complete a programme with the IMF," Yatsenyuk told a cabinet meeting a day after opening talks with a visiting mission of the International Monetary Fund.

Yatsenyuk had been scheduled to meet with the Group of Seven most industrialised nations in The Hague on Monday ahead of a nuclear summit to be attended by world leaders the next day.
