VILNIUS, September 6 (Itar-Tass) - Ukraine will fully comply with requirements of Brussels for candidates planning to sign an association agreement with the European Union by the summit of Eastern Partnership due in November, parliamentary speaker Vladimir Rybak said on Friday.

“I believe that in September-October we will by 100% fulfil our obligations and after this we will be able to sign an association agreement,” he said adding that Ukraine was interested in adopting “the European standards.”

Rybak also expressed the hope that the issue related to imprisonment of Ukraine’s former prime minister Yulia Timoshenko would be resolved. “The issue is beyond the parliament’s competence, but Ukraine’s top-ranking officials are actively working with EU representatives on this issue,” he said.

Ukraine and the European Union plan to sign an association agreement and a free trade treaty at the summit of Eastern Partnership in Vilnius in November, if Kiev fulfils all requirements of Brussels.
