US Seeks Cooperation With New Ukraine President

WASHINGTON, DC -- Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that the United States is looking for cooperation with Ukraine's President-elect Viktor Yanukovych.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Yanukovych was viewed as a pro-Moscow candidate in Washington, but the US administration has praised the election as credible.

Yanukovych narrowly defeated Yulia Tymoshenko in elections this month.

Tymoshenko claims there was election fraud.

But last week she dropped a court challenge to the results.

Clinton said in a US Senate hearing Wednesday that the United States will be watching the new government to see "what their attitudes may be."
