Prime Minister Mykola Azarov called the European Union for mutual concessions while setting up a free trade zone between Ukraine and the EU. He said this today in Luxembourg during a joint press conference with Vice-President of the European Commission, EU High Representative for Foreign Affaires and Security Policy Catherine Ashton.

"I called today Mrs. Ashton for mutual concessions and compromise: somewhere we make concessions, somewhere we expect that the EU will come to terms with us, so we must meet halfway," he said.

In her turn, Catherine Ashton said that the signing of an association and free trade agreement would double the export of goods from Ukraine to the European Union. She also called on the Ukrainian side to continue the work with the EU to develop a plan regarding the implementation of a visa free regime between Ukraine and the EU.
