As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, President Petro Poroshenko said the Netherlands would continue consultations on ratification of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union although November 1 was the deadline for such consultations following the referendum in the Netherlands.

The Committee of Permanent Representatives in the European Union (COREPER) has approved commencement of negotiations between the EU Council and the European Parliament on liberalization of the EU's visa regime for Ukrainian citizens.

At the same time, the EU Council takes the view that visa liberalization for Ukraine should enter into force at the same time as the new suspension mechanism enters into force.
