Ukraine-EU summit may take place in July – journalist
The European Union and Ukraine have tentatively agreed a date for a Ukraine-EU summit, which may take place on July 9.
"The EU-Ukraine summit is preliminary set for 9 July in Brussels. That means that [Ukrainian President Petro] Poroshenko should be able to stay for the NATO summit on 11-12 July. Hungary permitting...," Brussels reporter for Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty Rikard Jozwiak tweeted on May 3.
The Ukrainian news outlet Yevropeiska Pravda writes that the journalist joked about Hungary's permit, as EU member states cannot block events organized by the EU.
The final date of the Ukraine-EU summit is to be officially announced within the coming week, Yevropeiska Pravda said.
On July 11-12, Brussels will host a NATO summit, and Ukraine has been invited officially to one of its events.
It is still unknown whether Poroshenko is going to stay in Brussels between the summits.
Meanwhile, a meeting of the Ukraine-NATO commission at the level of the heads of state and government remains blocked by Hungary over the language provisions of Ukraine's new education law. A recent meeting of the Ukraine-NATO commission at the level of foreign ministers planned for April 23 was blocked by Hungary.
