KIEV, September 24 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine sees no grounds for stopping free trade with CIS member-states, if it signs an association agreement with the European Union, the head of the Foreign Ministry’s information department, Yevgeny Perebeinos, told a news conference on Tuesday.

This was his response to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s statement saying that Russia would stop special partnership relations with Ukraine after it signed an association agreement with the EU.

“Today Ukraine is a signatory to the agreement on free trade with the CIS and this agreement remains effective. We see no grounds why it should terminate in relation to Ukraine,” Perebeinos said adding that Ukraine was monitoring questions put by Russia in relation to an association deal with the EU.

“Ukraine has repeatedly expressed readiness for discussing the issue with Russia in detail and attracting EU representatives to this discussion,” he said.
