A united Europe is Ukraine's strategic partner and in many ways - an example, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych emphasized in his address to the nation on the occasion of Europe Day.
"We do everything so that in the nearest future Europe and Ukraine became inseparable. I am convinced that Ukraine is an important brick in the European House foundation, which will ensure its reliability and future. Strategic partnership between Ukraine and the EU is steadily transforming into the mutual integration," president said.
Yanukovych emphasized that this year Ukraine opens a new page in relations with the European Union.
"We open the door to the United Europe. Negotiations on the Association Agreement are approaching their final stage. We are steadily getting closer to creating a free trade zone with the EU. The Action Plan to liberalize EU visa regulations for Ukraine is being carried out. I am convinced that in the medium term we will achieve cancelling of the visa requirements for Ukrainian citizens," Yanukovych said in his address.
The president expressed confidence that 2011 will be a year of new achievements for Ukraine on the European path
