A new Ukraine-EU summit will take place in the second half of 2009 in Kiev, according to the press service of Ukraine's Foreign Ministry.

Ukraine's Foreign Ministry cited an agreement between the country's deputy foreign minister, Konstantyn Yeliseyev, Sweden's secretary to the prime minister, Anna Lind and Cecilia Malmstrom, Sweden's minister for EU Affairs, that the meeting would take place after July 1, when Stockholm takes over the chair of the European Commission.

In September 2008 during the Ukraine-EU summit in Paris, Ukraine failed to receive any confirmation that it would become an EU member state.

Stockholm and Warsaw have proposed Ukraine be included in its Eastern Partnership project which envisages a change in EU neighborhood policies towards Eastern European countries. The plan also includes Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia and Moldova, as well as North Africa and the Middle East.
