Kiev, March 13 IANS | 6 months ago

The Ukrainian parliament Thursday passed a resolution to confirm Kiev's commitment to following the course for integration with the European Union (EU).


The measure, which is aimed at signing the association agreement between Ukraine and the 28-member bloc, was supported by 252 lawmakers in the 450-seat assembly, Xinhua reported.

"The course for European integration has been fully restored," Alexandr Turchynov, Ukrainian parliament speaker, said after the resolution was passed.

The country's parliament authorised Prime Minister Arseny Yatsenyuk to sign the landmark partnership agreement with the EU on behalf of Ukraine as soon as possible.

The parliament also ordered the government to step up efforts needed for inking the agreement, in particular to complete the administrative reforms and amend legislation regarding the fight against corruption.

Earlier this month, Brussels had suggested that Kiev sign the political chapters of an association agreement. The EU also opened its market unilaterally to some Ukrainian goods.
