Groysman, Tusk 'synchronize watches' on completion of EU-Ukraine Association Agreement ratification, visa-free regime
Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman during a telephone conversation with President of the European Council Donald Tusk have discussed the issue of the introduction of a visa-free regime for Ukrainians by the EU and the completion of the ratification of the Association Agreement.
"We synchronized watches together with the president of the European Council on such priority issues on the agenda of our relations as the introduction of a visa-free regime for citizens of Ukraine and the completion of the ratification of the Association Agreement. We agreed that the close cooperation and constructive and mutually beneficial cooperation should determine the content of EU-Ukraine relations in the future," Groysman wrote on his Facebook page on Monday.
Ukrainian PM said that the conversation was particularly important due to the fact that he could not take part in today's meeting of the Council of the EU-Ukraine Association in Brussels.
"The government has approached this meeting of the Association Council with specific results in the implementation of internal reforms, which have been positively marked by our European partners," Groysman said.
As reported, on December 15 the information which was posted on the website of the European Parliament said that European MPs planned to consider the issue of granting a visa-free regime to Ukraine at the plenary session, which was to be held on April 3, 2017. However, after some time, this information was removed from the site.
