Newly-appointed Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Olha Stefanishyna has outlined her priorities at the position.

In particular, these are the revision of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement based on Ukraine's national interests, the revision of the terms of financial cooperation with the EU, and the establishment of cooperation between all branches of power for sustainable movement towards EU and NATO membership.

"Three main priorities of my work are the formation of Ukraine's internal position on the format and scope of political and economic revision of the Association Agreement, the revision of terms of funding Ukraine not only as a country with which the EU cooperates, since we talk about the integration of markets. The third priority is establishment of cooperation in the Government-Parliament-President format regarding the development, adoption, implementation, and promotion of decisions towards the implementation of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and Ukraine-NATO Annual National Programme based on the national interests of Ukraine," Stefanishyna said at the Verkhovna Rada before her appointment, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

European integration is a natural process for Ukraine, she stressed, and it is important to ensure that the process of integration into the EU and NATO "takes place primarily on the basis of Ukraine's national interests." "It is possible if there is coordinated work of all branches of power and coordinated work within the Government," Stefanishyna believes.

As reported, the Verkhovna Rada adopted resolution No. 3584 on the appointment of Olha Stefanishyna as the Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine. The decision was supported by 255 lawmakers.
