President of France Nicolas Sarkozy states he has an intention to favour Ukraine’s movement to the European Union. He said today at the session sitting of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

“We should favour Ukraine’s movement to EU”, said president of France.

At the same time, he noted that Ukraine’s membership in the European Union won’t be a simple question, because it concerns a rather large country with the population at about 50 million. It is not a “small” decision,” said Sarkozy.

“The one who walks by the streets of Kyiv will understand it is European capital,” he said, as UNIAN reports.

As ForUm reported, on July 9, there was EU-Ukraine summit in Evian. Ukraine has many expectations for France’s heading in EU, especially for the progress in negotiations about new agreement, held since March 5, 2007.
