KIEV, December 10 (Itar-Tass) - Kiev will determine the conditions of signing the Association Agreement with the European Union before the Ukraine-EU summit in March 2014, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich said on Tuesday at a meeting with Ukraine’s former presidents Leonid Kravchuk, Leonid Kuchma and Viktor Yushchenko.
Yanukovich stressed that the Ukrainian side would negotiate “each commodity group” with Brussels since “the proposed agreement as it is poses certain risks to Ukraine’s agrarian sector."
A program for reforms, started in May 2010, was aimed to achieve the EU criteria in different spheres, the president said.
“We are currently implementing this program, though we sometimes fail to keep up with our schedule given that the reforms require financing,” he noted, adding that these reforms “should give the people better lives."
“We are working on it at the moment,” Yanukovich added.
