Kyiv (QHA) - The document was signed by Ukrainian Prime Minister Nykolay Azarov and his Maltese counterpart Joseph Muscat in Kyiv on Wednesday, an Interfax-Ukraine reporter said. "I hope that the signing of this document will contribute to the intensification of bilateral relations, notably in the light of the realization of Ukraine's aspirations for European integration and the signing of the Association Agreement," Azarov told journalists following the signing of the convention. The Maltese premier, in turn, said that his country supports Ukraine's European integration course and hopes that the EU and Ukraine will sign the Association Agreement in November. He added that Ukraine has demonstrated significant progress in the reform implementation process.
