KIEV, December 27. /ITAR-TASS/. No one has called Ukraine into the European Union, Prime Minister Nikolai Azaorv told reported on Friday.
“No one has called on us to join the European Union. There is no such note in the Association Agreement,” Azarov said.
“Over two years we did our best to sign the Agreement, but we’ve given up,” the Ukrainian premier said.
Future relations between Ukraine and the European Union depend on Europe’s position, including on Russia’s participation in the tripartite talks. “All depends on the position of the European Commission, and of the European Union,” he said.
Ukraine proposed the EU to hold tripartite talks with the involvement of Russia. “Russia has agreed. Now it’s the turn of the European Commission,” he added.
Ukraine will sign the Association Agreement with the EU if the compensation is paid for possible losses, Azarov said.
