Kiev/ Ukraine in Arabic/ Representatives of the European Commission and the EU External Action Service announced this at a meeting with head of the Ukrainian parliament's committee on human rights Hryhoriy Nemyria, the Ukrainian MP told reporters.

"I've had meetings in the EC, the External Action Service, where one of the issues I'd like to get an answer to was whether there are signals from the side of the EU that the introduction of a free trade area [with Ukraine] may be postponed to a later date again. I heard the answer that the EU's position remained unchanged, and they reminded that [the economic provisions] of the Agreement were put off until the end of 2015 at the Ukrainian side's request," he said.

According to Nemyria, it's very important that the Ukrainian side could soon demonstrate its clear position that "it has got no plans to postpone this." The agreement provides an opportunity to hold consultations to extend transitional periods, boost assistance in harmonizing legislation, and enables Ukraine to change its priorities to "support or not to support, or significantly support this or other sector," Nemyria said.
