Rada, European Parliament to sign cooperation agreement next month – Groysman
European Parliament President Martin Schulz is expected to arrive in Kyiv in July to sign an agreement on cooperation between the Verkhovna Rada and the European Parliament, parliamentary speaker Volodymyr Groysman has said.
"We expect a visit of European Parliament visit Mr. Schulz next month, during which we'll sign a joint agreement on cooperation between the European Parliament and the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine," Groysman said during a joint press conference with Commissioner for the European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations Johannes Hahn at the Rada on Thursday.
Groysman stressed that this would be the first such agreement between the two parliaments.
He said that the Ukrainian parliament is prepared to fulfill its obligations in adopting these laws, which will make Ukraine closer to the European Union.
Groysman added that the Rada would ratify the EU-Ukraine agreement on a third package of micro-financial aid on Thursday.
