We would like to warmly congratulate you on your appointment as the Prime Minister of Ukraine. Your Government has a strong mandate and parliamentary support. We are confident these will support your efforts to carry out the reforms expected by Ukraine's citizens.
The EU is committed to continuing to support Ukraine in advancing those important reforms. We look forward to implementing jointly the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and its Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area, in order to make full use of the many opportunities the agreement offers to bring our citizens and businesses together.
You can also count on our continued steadfast support to Ukraine's independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity. The European Union remains committed to supporting a peaceful solution to the conflict in the east of Ukraine and the affected communities, and is unwavering in its non‑recognition of the illegal annexation of the Crimean peninsula.
We wish you a successful term as Prime Minister and look forward to meeting you soon.
