 Yatseniuk: Moscow will not change the text of Ukraine's Free Trade Agreement with EU

There is no doubt that effective Jan. 1, 2016 the agreement on free trade zone between Ukraine and the EU will commence work.

This opinion was expressed by Prime Minister of Ukraine Arsenii Yatseniuk, Censor.NET reports citing the press service of the People's Front.

"There will be no delays, and especially there will be no right [given] to Moscow, or anyone else to post or change the text of the present Agreement. This is our sovereign right between Ukraine and the European Union," the prime minister said during the Ukraine - EU summit in Kyiv.

The head of the government noted that the Ukraine - EU summit "can be called not the 17th, but the 1st - the first summit in the new Ukraine, in another country, which is struggling now for its independence, for its European future, for our common values and security, including in the European Union."

"All of us have a historic mission, historic responsibility for the future of Ukraine and for our common future together with the European Union," he said.

Yatseniuk reminded that last year Ukraine signed the Association Agreement with the EU and a deep and comprehensive free trade area with the European Union: "After our talks, I think no one doubts that starting Jan. 1, 2016 the Free Trade Agreement between Ukraine and the EU will become effective.
