The next meeting of the European Union-Ukraine Association Council will be held in December, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announced on Oct. 2.

The meeting was planned during a gathering of EU foreign ministers in Kyiv led by EU High Representative Josep Borrell.

"Accession to the European Union is our priority goal, and we are working together, in a coordinated manner and persistently to realize it as soon as possible," Shmyhal said.

Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba reported that the EU ministers reached a consensus at the Oct. 2 meeting regarding Ukraine's accession to the bloc, saying all parties were "determined to move forward with maximum speed."

Shmyhal called the meeting "historic."

"This once again demonstrates the unwavering unity and solidarity of the European Union with Ukraine," he said.
