Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende said Wednesday that time is not yet ripe for Ukraine to become a member of the European Union, Radio Netherlands reported.

The prime minister made the comment after a meeting with visiting Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko in The Hague.

Balkenende, however, praised the Ukrainian government for instituting reforms and spoke of the "excellent relations" between the two countries.

The two leaders signed four treaties of cooperation in the fields of finance and energy.

Yushchenko, who arrived in the Netherlands for a two-day visit, was officially welcomed by Dutch Queen Beatrix.

Yushchenko also met the speakers of both houses of parliament on Wednesday.
