Ukraine prepares for the next Ukraine-EU summit, which takes place on October 1, the Deputy Head of the President of Ukraine Office Ihor Zhovkva announced.
” It is for sure to take place. Both European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in their communications with President Zelensky confirmed that the EU-Ukraine summit, which we prepare for, will be held on the 1 of October”, – he said.
Zhovkva stated that at the summit Ukraine expects to sign an agreement on a common aviation area. “Everyone knew about the problem between Great Britain and Spain because of the Gibraltar airport status. After Britain has left the EU, this problem was eliminated. Now technical negotiations are in progress. Spain must give its wording on the airport status. And we have a specific goal that during the Ukraine-EU summit in October, this agreement will be signed finally”, the official stressed.
The previous EU-Ukraine summit took place on July 8, 2019, in Kyiv. The EU was represented at the summit by the then Presidents of the European Council Donald Tusk and the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker, while Ukraine was represented by President Volodymyr Zelensky.
