Ukraine to launch talks on EU accession before year-end if no force majeure events occur - Kuleba

Ukraine

The head of Ukrainian diplomacy noted this, speaking on the air of the national telethon, Ukrinform reports.

"I think from the end of this week, you will see events and news that will have a positive effect. The Ukrainian authorities worked hard to fulfill everything required from our side. The president of Ukraine controlled this process and provided momentum when something was dragging or slowing down. I’ve repeatedly said over the past months that if no force majeure events come up, then by the end of this year, Ukraine will launch negotiations on the EU membership," he said.

Commenting on the EU reform, Kuleba noted that it is very difficult for the organization itself and that the situation was changed by Ukraine's application for membership filed last year.

"All the processes regarding EU enlargement were unfrozen and the reform processes were also unfrozen, but it turned out that there is no vision for that reform. It’s not completely clear where to move," explained the minister.
