The summit Ukraine-European Union will take place on 24 November, the EU Council said in a statement last week.

"On Thursday 24 November Donald Tusk, President of the European Council will host the 18th EU-Ukraine summit. He will represent the EU together with Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of the European Commission. President Petro Poroshenko will represent Ukraine," the statement reads

Leaders will discuss EU-Ukraine relations including:

visa liberalisation;

implementation of the Minsk agreements;

the agenda of reforms and anti-corruption measures in Ukraine.

Ukraine-EU summits are traditionally held once a year, alternately in the EU and Ukraine.

The previous event was held April 27, 2015 in Kyiv. The 18th summit was supposed to be held in Brussels on May 19, 2016, but was postponed.
