European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso hopes that the summit of "Eastern Partnership", scheduled for November 28-29 in Vilnius, will be successful.

He said this at a joint press conference in Vilnius with Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.

"I hope that the summit in Vilnius will be successful. I look forward to fruitful discussions on a number of association agreements with our Eastern partners," Barroso said.
The President of Lithuania noted that the "Eastern Partnership" is very important for the EU, as the issue relates to its neighbours.

"We want to see a developed democracy, security and human rights protection,"  Grybauskaite said.

Speaking in the context of relations with Ukraine, the President of Lithuania said that she would like to see further movement of Kyiv's European integration, and recalled the three main groups of tasks that must be met by Ukraine to sign the Association Agreement with the EU.

"The first is the decision on selective justice. The second is a legal reform that deals primarily with the Prosecutor General’s Office. Third is the electoral reform, in particular, the adoption of the Electoral Code, including solutions to the problems of municipal elections in Kyiv," Grybauskaite said.

"We would like to see certain results for all three groups of problems, otherwise it will be very difficult to sign the agreement," Dalia Grybauskaite added.
