Meeting of EU-Ukraine Association Council postponed until Feb 2021

Ukraine and the European Union agreed to hold the 7th meeting of the EU-Ukraine Association Council, which was previously scheduled for December 8, in February 2021.

"We have decided to hold the Association Council with European partners in the format of a physical meeting. Due to the tough lockdown in Brussels, which does not allow an offline visit, we agreed to postpone it until February 2021. In the meantime, we agreed to maintain a dialogue at a high political level until the Ukrainian delegation visits Brussels as soon as possible," Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Olha Stefanishyna explained, the Government portal reported.

Stefanishyna also said that this week she and Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal will have a conversation with EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell and EU Commissioner for Neighborhood and Enlargement Olivér Várhelyi, after which they will be able to talk about a specific date for the meeting.

As a reminder, the meeting of the EU-Ukraine Association Council was scheduled for December 8 in Brussels. It is an annual event where the implementation of the Association Agreement is assessed at the highest political level and future plans are determined.
