The ambassadors of the EU member states accredited in Ukraine have expressed their "full solidarity" with Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira, who criticized the domestic situation in Ukraine.

This is stipulated in a statement by the ambassadors obtained by UKRINFORM at the EU Delegation to Ukraine.

"The ambassadors of the EU Member States accredited to Ukraine express full solidarity with Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira and welcome the affirmation by the spokesperson of the High Representative/Vice President Catherine Ashton that he continues to enjoy the full confidence of the European Union, her support and that of the European External Action Service," reads the statement.

As reported, on February 28, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry expressed its "surprise" at public statements made by Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Jose Manuel Pinto Teixeira regarding the situation in the country. The ministry described as "undiplomatic" Teixeira's statement about President Viktor Yanukovych's unfulfilled promises regarding the improvement of the investment and business climate. The EU called such a position by the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry "unacceptable and groundless," saying that it is an assault on the diplomat's personal decency and professionalism.
