VILNIUS, November 29, 15:37 /ITAR-TASS/. Europe is not going to make new dealings with Ukraine or set new tasks for the republic, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite said at a news conference after the Eastern Partnership summit.“The EU will not make any dealings with Ukraine. We are not putting forward new tasks. Ukraine knows what terms it must comply with,” said the president of Lithuania, which currently holds the EU Council presidency.
“Although Kiev unilaterally suspended the process of European integration, the European Union is still ready to help the Ukrainian people, to render assistance on their path towards democracy and human rights,” the president added.
“The door to a deep integration remains open for Ukraine. All depends on the political elite of that country. The Ukrainian government can reverse their decision,” President Grybauskaite said.
“We hope that Ukraine will make decisions useful for the country before the fourth partnership summit in Riga,” she summed up.
According to the Lithuanian president, the summit in Vilnius had been successful despite Ukraine’s refusal to sign the association agreement with the EU, which was initialed by Georgia and Moldova.
