You're reading: German ambassador: No signs that EU will sign association agreement with Ukraine

German Ambassador to Ukraine Hans-Jurgen Heimsoeth has said he believes that the association agreement between the EU and Ukraine cannot currently be signed.

"At this moment I see no signs that the agreement will be signed," he said in an exclusive interview with Interfax-Ukraine, when asked to comment on the future fate of the document, which has already been initialed.

Heimsoeth recalled that all EU member states should give their agreement to the signing of the agreement.

"All possible terms or the early use of certain parts of the agreement, as stated by the Ukrainian side, have no grounds. It’s necessary to realize that only the EU Council of Ministers takes a decision on the signing, not the European Commission. It is the Council of Ministers of 27 EU member states, and this decision must be unanimous," he said.
