With the ratification of the Treaty on the unity between the EU and Ukraine had serious problems, no solutions at the conference the EU on 20-21 October in Brussels taken on the issue will not, said a senior EU official.
"We believe that there are serious problems With the ratification of the Treaty" - he said at the beginning of the EU summit on 20-21 October in Brussels, which the present Prime Minister of the Netherlands mark Rutte will talk about " further steps in the ratification of the Treaty ", RIA " Novosti ".
"But I'm not expecting any solutions," said the source. On the eve of October it was announced that a Union of European States did not want to fulfill the request of the Netherlands to amend the agreement on Association With Ukraine. Dutch Prime Minister mark Rutte " wished to add a short PostScript to the agreement, in which to talk about the fact that the document relates only to trade and cooperation and not of Ukraine opens the way to the EU ". However, none of the European partners did not support this initiative, the source said. Last week the Prime Minister of the Netherlands mark Rutte said that the government May refuse to ratify the Treaty. The Advisory referendum on the issue of ratification of the Treaty on the unity between the EU and Ukraine was held in the Netherlands April 6. In the process, 61% came to the polls voted against the ratification of the document. Despite the results of the vote of the people, the Dutch government did not immediately make the decision to abandon the ratification of the document. Instead Rutte has set a target to discuss With European colleagues and try to adjust to the contract. However, even the Prime Minister himself acknowledges that to achieve changes in the document approved and ratified by the 27 EU member States and Ukraine, is unrealistic. In addition, the failure to ratify threatens to exacerbate relations With the European colleagues, and at the same time, inaction is causing discontent in the country. Opposing political force believes that the Prime Minister wishes to pass the time until March 2017, when the country's next scheduled parliamentary elections.
