The question of cancellation or transfer of UEFA EURO 2012 tournament is not on the agenda. The championship will be held in Ukraine within the set terms, Minister of Economic Development and Trade Petro Poroshenko told a briefing in Kyiv Thursday, according to UKRINFORM.

"Today there is a lot of calls for transferring or cancelling EURO 2012, but I would like to reassure everybody: there will be no transfer. EURO will be held on schedule. I see no danger and no threat," Poroshenko emphasized.

He added that EURO is not a matter of power, but a matter of the country and its image. "I am convinced that it is impossible to allow any real aftermath of boycotting EURO," he said.

Poroshenko at the same time pointed out that cancellation of some European politicians' visits for EURO 2012 is likely. "I admit that a number of European politicians may cancel their visits to Ukraine. I believe that Ukraine should draw appropriate conclusions from that... The situation with a possible boycott of EURO 2012 is very harmful for Ukraine," the minister underscored.
