The meeting took place on Tuesday in Hannover, which hosted the 25th congress of the CDU, the party’s press service reported.
“The association agreement between Ukraine and the EU is a program for reforming the key areas of life in Ukraine. Therefore, its signing would be helpful. The Ukrainian opposition and Ukraine’s friends in Europe would get additional levers of influence on the Ukrainian authorities. Together we could have demanded that they perform actions under the agreement, and we could have received concrete benefits from association,” Klitschko said.
He noted that opposition democratic forces in the newly elected Verkhovna Rada were seeking to return Ukraine to the European path of development.
