KIEV, October 20. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry on Tuesday announced "actual completion" of the ratification of the association agreement with the European Union as 22 European Union member states have ratified this agreement.
"We are actually completing the ratification in a span of one year," Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said, adding it was an "unprecedented" short term for such a procedure.
He said twenty-two European Union member states "have completed ratification procedures." "The ratification procedure is completed not when national parliament pass relevant decisions or the head of state puts his signature under the document but when the European Union secretariat is notified about the completion of domestic procedures," he said, adding that a number of other countries "are rounding off ratification procedures.".
