( ForUm ) - European Commissioner for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs Joe Borg noted that for today neither Ukraine nor the EU was ready for Ukraine's accession to the EU.
He said that on Wednesday in Strasburg at the EU session, speaking about economic and trade relations with Ukraine.
"None of the sides is ready for accession...That's why new enhanced agreement does not foresee conditions of future relations," Joe Borg said.
He has also noted that the European Commission and countries-members are convinced in necessity of partnership strengthening with Ukraine and consider it is possible to start negotiations on creation of free trade zone after Ukraine's accession to the WTO.
As a reminder, since March 2007 Ukraine and the EU are negotiating on new enhanced agreement that must change the current one on partnership and cooperation that expires in 2008.
The key position of new agreement must be creation of free trade zone.
