Slovakia is optimistic about the options for continuing the process of association of Ukraine with the European Union, despite the negative outcome of the referendum in the Netherlands.

This was stated by Slovakian Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajcak while presenting the priorities of the country's presidency of the Council of the European Union, an Ukrinform correspondent reports from Brussels.

"Today, our friends from the Netherlands should submit proposals on how the referendum results should be put into practice. There are several options, but I cannot accept the option of suspension of the process of Ukraine’s association," he stressed.

The Slovak Foreign Minister noted that the results of the Dutch referendum on EU-Ukraine association cannot be ignored, but a positive solution for continuing Ukraine's political association and economic integration with the EU should be found.
