A number of important issues except visa liberalization will be considered at the summit, such as the issue of Minsk agreements, anti-Russian sanctions extension, economic issues, including implementation of the Association Agreement on free trade, the prospects of concluding other agreements and the question of ratification by the Netherlands of the Association Agreement, describes Ukraine Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Mariana Betsa.

"There is discussion going on between three parties EU-Ukraine-Netherlands to complete the process of ratification of the Association Agreement. We are trying to find a compromise to take the interests of the Netherlands into account, given the negative outcome of the referendum and the interests of Ukraine and the EU," said Betsa.
