On February 2, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, will visit Ukraine with a delegation. During the visit, negotiations will be held on how to speed up Ukraine's accession to the EU.
Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal stated this at the government meeting.
"On February 2, European commissioners and the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, should arrive in Ukraine for intergovernmental consultations. These will be very practical negotiations on how to speed up Ukraine's path to the EU, what reforms we are launching, what kind of help we need," he said.
Shmyhal added that the Ukraine-EU summit will be held on February 3.
"We are continuing our European integration very quickly and clearly understand the near future for Ukraine to become a member of the EU," he said.
The Prime Minister emphasized that Ukraine has established very close and fruitful interaction with European partners at the level of the European Commission, the European Parliament, and the European Council.
We will remind, earlier the speaker of the European Commission Dana Spinant announced that 15 of the 27 members of the European Commission will visit Kyiv on February 2. They will hold a meeting with representatives of the Ukrainian government.
In addition, Shmyhal previously confirmed the visit of Ursula von der Leyen to Kyiv.
