Ukraine not to enter into EU membership
EU Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy Stefan Fule said that the Association Agreement would not contain the prospect of Ukrainian EU membership or of art. 49 European Treaty, that guarantees such a prospect.
"... I hope this has not become a problem, which turned out to be an obstacle to sign the Association Agreement by the Ukrainian side", - he said.
Also Fule said that Ukraine could become a innovator, entering into an agreement with the EU, the economic part of which was outside the framework of the traditional concept of a free trade area (FTA).
"Today, Ukraine has historic opportunity. You have still one or two steps to do. And now if you do not use this strategic point, you seem to be few opportunities to return to the same position", - said the Commissioner.
