According to Mykolska, the negotiations on the FTA are beneficial both for Ukraine and for Israel.

"Israel is a member of the Pan-Euro-Med agreement, to which we also subscribe. In the context of their and our agreements with the EU, our agreement on an FTA with them may form our value chain in this triangle. Israel also needs new markets, because competition in the EU market will increase", she said.
