Ukraine to implement 107 regulations under Association Agreement with EU
Ukraine needs to implement 107 regulations and directives under the Association Agreement with the European Union (EU), Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Olha Stefanishyna said .
The majority of legislative acts necessary for Ukraine’s closer integration with the EU have been handed over to parliament for consideration, Stefanishyna was quoted by the government’s press service as saying on Thursday.
Compliance with the regulations and guidelines would help Ukraine bring its laws closer to those of the EU and pave the way for the start of talks on possible joining the bloc, she added.
The Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU entered into force on September 1, 2017, which allows Kyiv and Brussels to cooperate in areas such as trade, defence, taxation, control of borders and the fight against terrorism, reported the Xinhua news agency.
On June 23, EU leaders accepted Ukraine as a candidate to join the bloc.
