Ukraine-EU Association Agreement is not an endpoint of relationships between Ukraine and the European Union, it is said in the conclusive statement and recommendations of the parliamentary committee for Ukraine-EU Association after the third meeting which took place in Brussels on April 25-26. The document has been published on official website of Ukrainian parliament.
It is noted, in particular, that Ukraine has a European perspective under article 49 of the Agreement with the European Union and can apply to join the European Union in case it meets Copenhagen criteria and implements principles of democracy, respects human rights, rights of minorities and ensures the rule of law.
It is also mentioned in the document that Ukraine is disappointed in the negative results of the consultative referendum in the Netherlands on April 6. However, Ukraine believes, that it won’t stand in the way of “unprecedented solidarity and considerable support of the European Union to Ukraine”.
Currently, the parliamentary committee is waiting for a statement from the Dutch authorities regarding further actions.
