Ukraine and the European Union are seeking a compromise on issues preventing conclusion of the Association Agreement, and "will not seek additional obstacles" to the signing of this document. Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Raisa Bohatyriova said this in a conversation with representatives of the Ukrainian media in Warsaw, UKRINFORM reported.

"As for the economic part of the Agreement, this work has been done at the technical level. We can put a stop to it," Bohatyriova said, voicing hope the EU will have no more questions on the issue.

She also informed that in November-December, negotiations will continue between Kyiv and Brussels to seek ways to resolve differences between Ukrainian and European positions. One such issue is fixing in the Agreement on Association prospects for Ukraine's membership in the EU.

The NSDC Secretary acknowledged that the EU is concerned about the situation with the observance of human rights in Ukraine. Kyiv is trying to solve these problems by holding appropriate reforms, in particular, in the judiciary.

Bohatyriova noted that, during her meeting with President Bronislaw Komorowski of Poland, they addressed the issue of European integration prospects for Ukraine in the context of the situation with Yulia Tymoshenko. She said that the fate of 48 million citizens and the country's European choice should not depend on the legal cases against the ex-premier. This question "needs to be addressed in the language of legal argument and judicial process."

Komorowski, according to the Secretary of the National Security Council, made it clear that "Warsaw remains committed to its strong desire to help Ukraine achieve its goal, which is membership in the EU."

Bohatyriova has also held talks with the head of the Bureau of National Security of Poland, Stanislaw Koziej; Vice-Premier, Minister of Economy Waldemar Pawlak; and Minister of National Defense Tomasz Siemoniak.

According to the results of the visit, the parties signed a joint communique and a plan of cooperation between the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine and the National Security Bureau of Poland for 2012-2013.
