Germany completes ratification of EU-Ukraine Association Agreement
Germany has completed the ratification of the Association Agreement between the European Union and Ukraine by transferring the documents about the ratification of Association Agreements of the EU with Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine to the Depositary of the General Secretariat of the Council of the European Union on July 22, according to Germany's Embassy in Ukraine, eurointegration.com.ua wrote.
"The fact that Germany has so quickly ratified the agreement between the EU and Eastern partners is a manifestation of our friendship, partnership and solidarity with these countries," the German Embassy in Ukraine quoted a spokesperson for Germany's Federal Foreign Office as saying.
Among the countries that have not launched the ratification are Greece and Cyprus. Experts suggest that these countries have deliberately been hindering the process.
