In the course of his speech at the Day of dialogue between representatives of local government and the state government, Petro Poroshenko emphasized that on June 27, in Brussels, in the presence of 28 heads of state and Governments of the EU countries, the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU will be signed.
"This is what we've been fighting for since the year 2007, when the concept of associate membership has been determined for the first time. The first and an extremely important phase is finished and the new one is about to begin," the Head of State noted.
The President reminded that after the signature of the Association Agreement with the EU, Ukraine will have to work over the implementation and adaptation of national legislation to the requirements and standards of the European Union. "This work is in no way easier or less responsible but I am confident that we will carry it out qualitatively," the President said.
