In his speech at the European Parliament plenary debate, Pesident of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso has appealed to the Ukrainian authorities to fulfill all requirements the EU sets for signing the Association agreement.

"We expect our partners to keep and deliver on their commitment to the reforms and to the values that underpin these partnerships. I therefore launch from here an appeal to Ukraine to fulfil the remaining benchmarks and seize the opportunity of the extension of the Cox-Kwasniewski mission. I believe the next weeks are critically important for Ukraine and I make a strong appeal for us and for Ukraine to reach progress in that process," he said in the speech.

The official also pointed out that "while moving forward on our internal priorities we should not lose sight of our external responsibilities, in particular our close neighbourhood."

"Our common goal is to conclude Association Agreements, including Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Areas. The free will of these countries must be respected by everyone," Barroso said.
