In the Cabinet announced a new goal of Ukraine on European integration

В Кабмине озвучили новую задачу Украины по евроинтеграции

Kiev wants to start a dialogue about the admission of Ukraine to the Schengen area.

The next task of Kiev is to start negotiations on joining of Ukraine to the Schengen area. This was stated by Vice Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine Ivanna klympush-Tsintsadze in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.

“One of the objectives that we set for ourselves, is the beginning of a dialogue on the admission of Ukraine to the Schengen area”, – she said.

Also, she said, it is necessary to negotiate “road maps” on liberalization of access of Ukrainian services on the EU market and their services in Ukraine. So, Kiev and Brussels need to agree on a road map in the telecommunications, postal, financial services, Maritime transport, as well as to negotiate about access to the digital market.

While klympush-Tsintsadze does not consider it necessary to conduct negotiations on the liberalization of movement of labour and considers it more important to focus on creating opportunities for realization of Ukrainian citizens in the homeland.

We will remind, in may, President Petro Poroshenko said he intends to do everything to ensure that Ukraine became a member of the Schengen area.
