    Remarks by High Representative Federica Mogherini after today's meeting of the Foreign Affairs Council Remarks by High Representative Federica Mogherini after today's meeting of the Foreign Affairs Council <p>I apologise for being late. That was not out of major divisions or discussions but out of real in-depth conversation on all the points that we had on the agenda, with all the ministers concentrating on the two main political issues that we decided to have on the agenda today: which is on one side Ukraine, and on the other side the Middle East Peace Process. But we also touched upon other issues to which I will come afterwards.</p> 11/17/2014 21:11:50 11/17/2014 21:11:50 11/17/2014 21:11:50 11/05/2015 21:11:50 2014111721 090126248d6486a2 N 090126248d6486a2 /statements-eeas/2014/141117_03_en.htm 24943 xml Y /statements-eeas/2014/141117_03_en.htm 1 /statements-eeas/2014/141117_03_en.htm /statements-eeas/2014/141117_03_zz.htm N ID_INTERNAL N N

The European Union and Ukraine share an objective which transcends bilateral cooperation: gradual progress towards political association and economic integration.

In mid-2013 the EU-Ukraine Council endorsed an updated EU-Ukraine Association Agenda , designed to pave the way for the Association Agreement and the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA ).

On 5 March 2014 the European Commission agreed on a financial assistance package of at least EUR 11 bn in loans and grants from the EU budget and EU-based international financial institutions, to:

  • help stabilise Ukraine's economic & financial situation
  • support transition
  • encourage political & economic reforms
  • support inclusive development.

After signing the political chapters of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreementat the EU summit of 21 March 2014, both parties signed the remaining sections of the Agreement - including the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) - in the margins of the EU summit of 27 June 2014. Ukraine is expected to ratify the Agreement later this year. The aim is to start applying certain provisions (including nearly all the DCFTA section) provisionally from 1 November 2014.
