Josep Borrell, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy is to come to Ukraine with a visit in the coming weeks. The chief of European diplomacy said so on Tuesday, as he met with Ukraine's Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk. The two officials met in Brussels, Interfax reported.
"I intend to visit Ukraine in the next few weeks", Borrell said.
He insisted that Ukraine remains the EU's key partner, not just a close neighbor, which is why the EU supports the ambitious agenda of reforms in this country.
Previously, Oleksiy Honcharuk said that the EU accessory mission would come to Ukraine to evaluate the readiness of Ukraine's infrastructure and legal groundwork to the beginning of negotiations on the industrial visa-free regime.
Last year, Borrell replaced Federica Mogherini as the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. The Spanish-Argentinian politician, a member of the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE), Borrell previously served as Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation of the Government of Spain since 2018. In 2010, he chaired the Institute of the European University.
