Foreign Ministry welcomes EU agreements with three countries

SLOVAKIA welcomes the signing of the Association Agreements between the EU, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine that took place on June 28.

SLOVAKIA welcomes the signing of the Association Agreements between the EU, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine that took place on June 28.

In Ukraine’s case, the remaining parts related to economic integration have been sealed. The first part of the agreement associated with political issues was signed on March 21.

The signing of the association agreements completes five years of intensive talks between the EU and the three countries in question concerning their further political accession and economic integration in the EU, the Foreign Ministry wrote in its official statement, as reported by the TASR newswire.

Slovakia is ready to continue providing political support to Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine in their efforts aimed at EU integration, the ministry stated.

The association agreements, however, do not automatically mean the launch of EU-integration processes, though Moldova, for its part, would like to be granted the status of a candidate country as soon as next year. The agreements envisage a series of reforms in key areas, such as public administration, justice, police forces, economic revival and growth. Also expected are reforms in the energy industry, transport, the environment, industrial development, social development, education and culture.
