European Union ministers will hold new talks with Ukrainian opposition leaders and representatives of anti-government protesters on Friday, in an apparent new effort to secure an agreement to resolve the country's crisis.

The Ukrainian authorities had expected a deal to be signed at noon (1000 GMT) but the signing did not take place.

Deal between Ukraine opposition and Yanukovich still far away

Reaching an agreement between Ukraine's opposition and President Victor Yanukovich is still very distant, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said on Friday.

Tusk added that a new constitution for Ukraine is to be prepared by the end of summer as part of the draft agreement.

"We cannot say with all certainty that the worst-case scenario is definitely invalid," Tusk said at a press conference. "The threats are still there."
