President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said this in his opening remarks at the 19th Ukraine-EU summit in Kyiv on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Despite the reforms carried out in Ukraine, there is still much to be done. In particular, we are talking about the fight against corruption... This topic – the fight against corruption – is important for the standing of the Ukrainian nation in the dialogue with the European Union. Thus, I believe it is necessary to intensify this process," the European Commission President said.
Juncker also noted that the parties approached this summit with the fulfilled promises, which were granting Ukraine visa-free regime with the EU, completing ratification of the Association Agreement and providing the state with financial assistance from the Community. Ukraine also fulfilled the corresponding obligations.
"I am pleased with the progress we have achieved together," the President of the European Commission said.
