VILNIUS, November 29, 5:01 /ITAR-TASS/. The European Union countries "will not agree to softening demands placed upon Ukraine for the sake of its signing an Association Agreement", an high-ranking European diplomatic source told Itar-Tass on the strength of the results of the first day of the Vilnius summit.
"The conditions for the signing of an Association Agreement were determined by the EU Council in December 2012. These refer to a reform of electoral legislatin, a transformation of the judicial system, ruling out instances of selective justice, including the situation concerning Yulia Timoshenko," the diplomat emphasized. "These are principled conditions, a renunciation of which would render an Agreement on Association and a Free Trade Area devoid of sense. This is an agreement which concerns not only the economy and wellbeing of the people of Ukraine but common European values as well".
