Statement by President Barroso on Ukraine
"I welcome the agreement reached by the Ukrainian President and the opposition leaders, facilitated by the foreign ministers of Poland, Germany and France, on behalf of the EU, on a road map for a political resolution of the crisis. This is an important step towards avoiding violence and further bloodshed, achieving peace and stability in the country and resuming a political process. This needs now to be implemented without delay. The international community has a duty and a responsibility to support this process. The European Union will continue to assist in these efforts and remains committed to support Ukraine's political and economic reforms."
