The European Union believes that the Association Agreement with Ukraine “does not close any ways [to EU] but, at the same time, does not open any ways”, President of France Nicholas Sarkozy claimed in Paris Tuesday at a press conference on results of the 12th Ukraine-EU Summit.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, answering questions of journalists, N.Sarkozy said EU, by making this decision, wanted to stress once again that it has common values and common history with Ukraine.

According to the French President, who presides over EU at present, “EU did not commission me to make any other decisions or to declare any other statements”.
