Germany promises that during its presidency in the EU it will significantly enhance and improve the treaty basis with Ukraine, which is the main task of the EU neighbourhood policy and has been set in the program of Germany's presidency in the EU, German Ambassador to Ukraine Reinhard Schaefers told a press conference in Kyiv, Cabinet press office repor.

According to him, the need to enhance the treaty basis between Ukraine and the EU is connected first of all with the fact that the Agreement of Partnership and Cooperation between Ukraine and the EU and the Ukraine - EU Action Plan will soon expire.

Still, the Ambassador said, these plans do not envisage any concrete perspectives of Ukraine's membership in the EU. "Such perspectives are impossible first of all for internal processes in the EU," he said.

Presently, the EU proposes Ukraine to significantly improve the treaty basis of cooperation through drafting a free trade area agreement. "Ukraine's membership in the WTO is one of prerequisites for launching negotiations between Ukraine and the EU on concluding a free trade area agreement," the Ambassador said.

Furthermore, Reinhard Schaefers said, the EU wants to conclude several sector agreements with Ukraine. The cooperation will first of all deal with such spheres as ecology, environment, jurisprudence, transport and energy.
