“We are now preparing president’s visit to Brussels, which is to be made in the second half of October,” Konstantin Eliseev told reporters.
The visit would focus on discussions on “seeking mutually acceptable compromise on ratification of the association agreement with both the EU and the partners from the Netherlands,” he added.
In April, the Netherlands held a referendum in which 61 percent of Dutch voters rejected the ratification of the deal. Currently, the Netherlands is the only EU state, which has not yet ratified the agreement.
In 2014, the European Union signed an agreement with Ukraine to deepen political association and economic integration. Ukraine had to implement a series of political and economic reforms to gain free-trade access to the EU market.
