KIEV, February 10 (Itar-Tass) —— The signing of an association agreement between Ukraine and the European Union will depend on how soon Europe realizes it needs such an agreement as well, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Konstantin Grishchenko said on Friday.

“Europe needs an association agreement with Ukraine as much as Ukraine does. That is why I am sure its initiating and signing is a matter of European countries’ realization of their own interests rather than a matter of time,” he said.

Kiev planned to initiate the agreement on association with the European Union at the end of 2011 but due to technical reasons the procedure was postponed. It is expected that the document will be initiated within this year and signed later on.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said there was no alternative to the European integration for his country.
