EU not going to change Association Agreement with Ukraine
The European Union countries will not support a decision to change the wording of the Association Agreement with Ukraine because this will entail the need to ratify the document again, Ambassador Jan Tombinski, the head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine, said.
At a meeting of the European Council in late June, the leaders of the European countries told their Dutch colleagues that any substantial changes, which would force the other members to ratify the Association Agreement again, were not the path they should be contemplating, he told journalists in Kyiv on Wednesday.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte reported on the matter in parliament, and the EU is awaiting the Dutch parliament's response to this initiative, Tombinski said.
Earlier the Netherlands held a referendum during which a majority voted against the association with Ukraine.
