Preparations to ratify Ukraine-EU Association Agreement proceed as planned – Kiev

Bishkek (AKIpress) - EU+Ukraine Preparations to ratify the Ukraine-EU association and free trade zone agreement proceed as planned, deputy head of the Ukrainian President's Administration Valery Chaly said last week, The Voice of Russia cited.

“We are acting consistent with the procedures. After the initials of 28 ministries of 28 EU countries are collected, it [the document] will be filed with the Ukrainian Justice Ministry for initialing and legal evaluation. After, it will be submitted to the president and lodged with the parliament. So, there is a consistent democratic process underway,” he said.

This is an important agreement and it would be inappropriate to do the ratification in a hurry, Chaly underscored. “We do not want it to follow the example of the known Kharkov agreements. We remember well their results,” he said.

Tripartite consultations at ministerial level between Russia, the European Union and Ukraine on implementation of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU will be held on September 12 in Brussels.

“Bilateral consultations will be held at the expert level to exchange views and seek possible solutions to any risks. It will clarify what risks can be resolved bilaterally and in what cases the involvement of the EU will be required. Experts will identify the issues that need to be discussed at a higher level,” the European Commissioner for Trade Karel De Gucht said.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed the economic part of the association deal with the EU on June 27. The political part of the deal was signed in Brussels earlier, on March 21. On July 2, Poroshenko instructed his Foreign Ministry to draft and coordinate with the EU a plan to ratify the association deal.
