Ukraine officially became part of the all-European transport network TEN-T starting from November 24. This was reported by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin on his Twitter page.
According to Klimkin, Ukraine and the European Union concluded a document on "High Level Understanding on TEN-T core network extension maps to Ukraine."
"Just signed High Level Understanding on TEN-T core network extension maps to Ukraine. An important step towards further integration of Ukrainian and EU transport networks," he wrote.
The TEN-T trans-European network is an infrastructure project of the European Union, which envisages the creation by 2050 of a new transport system in the EU, comprising 94 ports, 38 airports and about 15,000 km of high-speed railways.
The decision on the extension of TEN-T to neighboring countries, including Ukraine, was taken on June 21, 2016 in Rotterdam, by the transport ministers of the European Union, the Eastern Partnership countries and the European Commission.
As it was reported earlier Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine claimed on the agreement with the European Commission achieved at the 'Eastern Partnership' summit on the allocation of the macro-financial support for Ukraine in 2018-2019.
'We agreed that the European Commission will release the communiqué on the ambitious project on the macro-financial support for Ukraine the next week. Three tranche is the same volume and we begin the work in January 2018. I hope that these agreements will be implemented in the near time and we wait for the communiqué from the Chairman of the European Commission the next week', Poroshenko said.
