Following the EU-Ukraine summit, the chairman of the EU – Ukraine Parliamentary Cooperation Committee Paweł Kowal said:

“I would like to express my satisfaction with the long-awaited 16th EU-Ukraine Summit, during which both sides confirmed their commitment to sign the Association Agreement – as soon as the determined action and tangible progress in three areas emphasised at the 2011 EU-Ukraine Summit and again set out in the conclusions of the EU Foreign Affairs Council on 10 December 2012, are demonstrated by Ukraine.

“The conclusions of the Summit confirm once again that the European choice of Ukraine may become a reality and Ukraine may soon anchor itself with the European Union. However, it must be preceded by an adequate effort from the Ukrainian side to fulfill their obligations.

“The European Parliament has emphasized many times the need for support of Ukraine’s European choice by the European Union. The Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius this year in November is a realistic date for signing the Association Agreement, but if we miss this opportunity, it might not appear again in the next few years.”
