ASTRAKHAN, September 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow welcomes the European Union’s decision to legally formalise delayed enactment of certain provisions of its Association Agreement with Ukraine, Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukayev said on Monday.
“The European Commission has issued such a document. This is quite enough from the legal point of view,” he said.
Earlier in the day, the Council of the European Union issued a resolution postponing the enactment of the agreement’s provisions concerning a deep and comprehensive free trade area between the European Union and Ukraine until December 31, 2015.
Ulyukayev said, however, he expected Kiev to follow suit and legally formalise the postponement.
“It would be important politically, of course, for Ukraine to make such a document,” he said.
