KIEV, November 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich does not rule out that the process of his country’s euro-integration may be paused.
“We do see that there are politicians and countries who think that Ukraine has not yet achieved the criteria it is expected to match, Yanukovich said at a news briefing following talks with Lithuania’s visiting President Dalia Grybauskaite on Tuesday.
Yanukovich said Kiev had practically completed the talks on signing an agreement of association with the European Union.
“We are still to make a political decision, to sign it, and then to achieve its ratification by the parliaments of the EU member-countries,” he said.
Yanukovich promised that the process of euro-integration for Ukraine would not be stopped altogether. Reforms in the country would proceed. Specifically, he pointed out that for Kiev it was very important to see the agreement of association contain a written statement about Ukraine’s outlook for EU membership.
