KIEV, March 15 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine will host the 18th summit of Central European countries in May, the government’s press service reported on Thursday.
The Ukrainian government has created an organising committee for preparing the 18th summit of Central European countries. “The summit is expected to be devoted to European integration due to the completion of the negotiations on the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, including the creation of a free trade zone and its decisive influence on the successful reforms in the region,” the press service said.
The summit is scheduled to be held in Yalta on May 11-12 and involve over 20 European high-ranking officials. The press service said Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich had invited the heads of state of Central and Eastern Europe, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and EU President Herman Van Rompuy to take part in the summit.
The 17th summit took place in Warsaw, Poland, in May 2011.
