Poroshenko: Ukraine to expand cooperation with European Union

Ukraine intends to continue to deepen cooperation with the European Union for the development of the state and the EU membership in the future.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said this during a meeting with representatives of national and foreign business in Kyiv, the press service of the Head of State said.

"We will expand our cooperation with the European Union. I believe that we can enter the Schengen Area. I believe that we can enter the EU Customs Union. I believe that we can enter the European Energy Union. I believe that Ukraine can become a member of the European Common Aviation Area," he said.

"These are the steps before the EU membership and the NATO membership will be open to us. But, firstly, we must work jointly, persistently and effectively in order to meet the criteria," Poroshenko noted.

The President called the support for his initiative on the abolition of roaming charges for Ukrainians in the EU countries an example of continuation of the Ukraine-EU cooperation.

"The initiative I put forward a year ago on the roaming for Ukrainians in the EU was endorsed by the European Parliament two days ago and was included into the list of documents for the Eastern Partnership Summit that will take place in Brussels this autumn," the Head of State stressed.
