Statement by High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini following her call with Foreign Minister of Ukraine, Pavlo Klimkin


I spoke today to Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin ahead of tomorrow's summit between the European Union and Ukraine in Kyiv.

We discussed the issues on the agenda, including the ongoing reform process as well as the situation in eastern Ukraine.

I expressed my most sincere apologies to the Minister for not being able to join President of the European Council Donald Tusk and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker at the summit, due to a commitment with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon following the Special European Council of 23 April.

I stressed my strong commitment to continue working closely with Ukraine for the stability and prosperity of the country.
