Ukrainian Vice PM for European Integration: Delay in visa-free regime may obstruct EU-Ukraine dialogue

Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze has held talks with French Ambassador to Ukraine Isabelle Dumont on the process of visa liberalization, Russian aggression and the possibility of cooperation in the reform of Ukrainian civil service.  

This is reported by the Government portal.

"In a conversation with Ambassador Isabelle Dumont, Ivanna Klympush-Tsyntsadze noted that Ukraine had fulfilled all its obligations under the visa liberalization and any delay in the introduction of the visa-free regime could undermine confidence in further dialogue between Ukraine and EU," the statement reads.

In addition, the Vice Prime Minister stressed that Ukraine relied on France's continued stance against Russian aggression in Donbas and in Crimea.

In turn, Ambassador Isabelle Dumont assured that the Government of the French Republic was a loyal friend of Ukraine, particularly regarding visa liberalization and diplomatic pressure on Russia as regards its full implementation of the Minsk agreements.

However, the Ambassador noted that the clear results in the fight against corruption in Ukraine would speed up the process of Ukraine's integration into Europe.
