VILNIUS, November 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Decision on joining the European family of nations should be taken by Ukraine itself, Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt said here Friday.
Ukraine should decide on its own whether it would like to join the European family based on certain values or to rely on an authoritarian tradition, he said, adding that the final choice belongs to the Ukrainian people.
Reinfeldt said that the EU’s so-called Eastern Partnership is keeping its doors for other countries open.
The doors is open are open for all others but these will be their own individual decision, he said.
The EU has made it clear that the countries seeking association should re-tailor themselves to match the values that membership of the EU implies, Reinfeldt said.
He stressed the importance of Eastern Partnership as a structure issuing reformist pressures on the countries lying to the East of the EU.
Two of them, Georgia and Moldova, signed far-reaching agreements — a fact that filled the EU with pride and a sense of satisfaction, Reinfeldt said.
When their leaders were putting their initials under the agreement, one could see how much importance those documents had for their countries.
