Fico says he regrets Ukraine EU decision, Sme daily distorted his words
5 Dec 2013 Flash News
Prime Minister Robert Fico clearly stated that he regrets that Ukraine decided not to sign an association agreement with the European Union, and the Sme daily twisted his words when saying that the prime minister in his statements backed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s policies, the Government Office press department informed the TASR newswire on December 4.
The EU is so in love with itself that it is convinced there is no better alternative to it in the world, Fico said in his comments on Ukraine’s decision to suspend the talks on association treaties between the EU and Ukraine, also the SITA newswire reported. EU membership is not a religious rule for countries and each country can freely decided whether or not it will join, Fico said, adding that one must look at the offers that have been put in place, such as the lowering of gas prices or projects offered to Ukraine.
“Ukraine simply decided to go another way and I will not judge it now, it is an internal affair [of Ukraine],” Fico said. He said he regretted that the decision was accompanied by violence and demonstrations.
