Klimkin: we need statements from EU summits fixing new important agreements, not repeating previously announced
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin believes the statements made at Ukraine-EU summits should fix new important agreements and breakthroughs in relations, while there is no sense in statements that will simply repeat what has already been said and recorded.
"It's very simple: why do we need one more piece of paper that repeats what has already been said in the association agreement? The achievements have already been fixed. We need to pass to statements that fix new, very important agreements. I'm not a fanatical supporter of just some statements that will be forgotten in 15 minutes," he said in the Details of the Week (Podrobytsi Tyzhnia) program on Inter TV Channel, commenting on the situation with the absence of statements following the Ukraine-EU summit.
"Why do we need a text on three, four, five pages that only experts will read and which does not contain really breakthrough things?" Klimkin emphasized.
