KIEV, May 14 (Xinhua) -- Ukraine and the European Union (EU) will hold their 20th summit on July 9 in Brussels, the Interfax-Ukraine news agency said on Monday, citing a senior EU official.

According to the agency, Hugues Mingarelli, head of the EU delegation to Ukraine, told reporters in Kiev that the summit will discuss Ukraine's fight against corruption, implementation of the Minsk agreements, and EU's macro-financial assistance for Kiev.

Ukraine's possible integration into the EU's customs union, the digital market, and the energy union will be also on the summit's agenda, Mingarelli said.

The 19th Ukraine-EU Summit was held in Kiev on July 12-13 last year.

On the eve of the 2017 meeting, the EU adopted the comprehensive Association Agreement with Ukraine, which includes a free trade deal and a broad range of legislation and regulation topics.

However, the EU gave no membership prospects for Ukraine, with officials of the 28-member bloc saying that the country did not meet political, legal and economic criteria to enter the bloc.
