Summit Ukraine-the European Union was postponed so that our European partners could appraise the new government of Ukraine, stated Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Vasyl Baziv in an interview to “112 Ukraine”.
“It’s not the first time that a summit is postponed. I’ve participated in such summits. Sometimes they are postponed for very fragmentary and technical reasons. I assume, that this time it has been put off due to the governmental crisis in Ukraine, due to the fact, that resignation of the old government and formation of the new one was such a slow process. Our European partners want to take a closer look at the new Ukrainian authorities. They just need more time to do it”, - the diplomat said.
Earlier, Ukraine-EU summit was postponed till September 2016 (from May 19, 2016).
