MOSCOW, May 24 - RIA Novosti. The deputy head of presidential administration of Ukraine Valeriy Chaly in Channel 5 said that some European countries are delaying ratification of the Association Agreement in Ukraine and the EU, said MigNews .
According to policy, the process of Ukraine's European integration is slowing because of four EU countries - Cyprus, Greece, Italy and Austria. In connection with this Chaly said he hoped that the state will accelerate work on the agreement. For this reason, the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met in Riga with the prime minister of Greece, Federal Chancellor of Austria, and "has always supported dialogue at the highest political level with the Prime Minister of Italy," the politician said.
In Riga on May 21-22 held a summit of "Eastern Partnership". Ukraine expects from the summit on the issue of promoting the introduction of a visa-free regime with the EU. However, the European Commission said earlier that Ukraine visa-free regime in Riga will not be offered. On Thursday morning, German Chancellor Angela Merkel also said that the easing of the visa regime is not yet possible.
On Friday, the head of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker at the press conference after the summit said that the European Commission will present a new report on the progress of Ukraine and Georgia on the path to a visa-free regime with the EU about by 15 December. Prime Minister of Latvia Laimdota Straujuma reported that the European Union could move to a visa-free regime with Georgia and Ukraine in 2016, when the European Commission will present a positive report.
The "Eastern Partnership" provides for political association and economic integration between the EU and Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. The last three countries last year signed an association agreement with the EU.
