KIEV, December 26, 5:50 /ITAR-TASS/. Kiev does not insist on revision of the association agreement with the EU, but wants to minimize possible risks, Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said on Wednesday at the television conference on "Ukrainian Industry -- Reality and Prospects".
The premier believes it was a forced and well-considered decision of the government when it took a pause and did not sign the agreement. "The negotiating process is continuing. We do not insist on revision of the agreement. The question is one of its use," he noted, adding that it was necessary to lower risks from the planned introduction of the free trade zone with the EU.
According to Azarov, he received confirmation during the talks in Moscow on Tuesday that Russia was ready together with the European Union and Ukraine to discuss issues related to European integration.
