KIEV, December 12, 1:36 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine continues to search for its own algorithm of relationship with the European Union and Russia that would allow the country to sign the Association Agreement with the EU on a “mutually advantageous basis”, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Leonid Kozhara said at a meeting with students on Wednesday, December 11.
During the meeting, special attention was paid to prospects for signing the Association Agreement with the European Union, which had not been concluded at the Eastern Partnership summit, which took place in Vilnius on November 28-29, due to the difficult economic situation in Ukraine.
Kozhara said, “Today the EU realises that it is necessary to search for compromises. The parties intend to start substantial talks on this issue shortly.”
Ukraine’s delegation led by First Vice-Premier Sergei Arbuzov will visit Brussels on Thursday, December 12, spokesman to the EU Commissioner for Enlargement and Good-Neighbourliness Policy Peter Stano said.
EU Commissioner Stefan Fule will meet the Ukrainian first vice-premier for talks on issues related to the signing and implementation of the Association Agreement in Brussels, Stano said.
He declined to specify other details.
Earlier this week, Fule said the European Union was not ready to revise the Association Agreement, which had been initialled with Ukraine.
However, the Commissioner said the European Union was ready to discuss a roadmap, conditions between Ukraine and the IMF (International Monetary Fund) and the EU assistance to Ukraine.
