Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov believes that there is no point in concluding Association agreement with the EU, if prospects of Ukraine's membership are not provided in it.

In an interview with Austrian newspaper Die Presse Azarov underlined that Ukraine's goal is membership in the European Union, and Association agreement is the first phase of the integration process.

"After some time a question will arise - what to do next. The negotiation process can last really long, and no one can predict when it will be finished. But if Ukraine is not granted a perspective of membership, what is the point of concluding political association," Azarov said.

At the same time he noted that Ukraine considers the economic integration with EU as an inseparable part of the political integration.
