In his remarks following the European Council, finished on Friday in Brussels, President Herman Van Rompuy said that the Council prepared the Vilnius summit with its six Eastern partners, which will take place five weeks from now.

"We hope to take important, even historic steps, in particular with Ukraine, provided there is determined action and tangible progress. That Association Agreement will be a test for the Eastern Partnership as a whole. The Ukrainian leadership knows what has to be done," President Van Rompuy said.

The official also added that the Council is ready to initiate similar agreements with the Republic of Moldova and Georgia, which could then be signed next autumn, in 2014.
