The future of relations between Ukraine and the EU Member States depends on implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement by Kyiv.

Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Hugues Mingarelli said this at a meeting of the leadership of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine with the ambassadors of the EU Member States, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We believe that the future of these relations [between Ukraine and the EU] depends on application and implementation of the Association Agreement," he said.

At the same time, Mingarelli stressed that the prerequisite for the effective implementation of the association agreement was "strong coordination between the government and the parliament" as well as coordination within the Cabinet of Ministers.

The Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine also noted that Ukrainian legislation on competition, transport, customs and taxation had already been brought into line with the European laws. However, many issues still remain unresolved, he noted.

In his opinion, Ukraine needs to define a list of priorities from among the requirements of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and to instruct the relevant ministries to effectively prepare the bills, the adoption of which is required by the agreement.
