Metsola expressed confidence that Ukraine will become a candidate country for EU membership.
EU ready open the door Ukraine and grant it candidate member status.
About this on the eve of the summit in the comments TSN said European Parliament President Roberta Metzola.
“For me, Ukraine is Europe. This week is very important – when we decide, together with the entire European family, to open our doors to Ukrainians who have shown so much courage and courage, who are fighting for the same values that we believe in. We are ready to open wide this door and I can’t wait to hug Ukrainian brothers and sisters together with our family,” the President of the European Parliament said.
Metsola also expressed confidence that Ukraine will become a candidate country for EU membership.
“We have already seen that Ukraine has been so quick in its responses – in showing that it needs to become part of our family. With the same speed with which we not only imposed sanctions in response to the Russian brutal invasion, but also accept Ukraine as a candidate state. I am sure that all the next steps to be taken will be taken and we will help in this,” she stressed.
Recall that the leaders of European countries must decide on granting Ukraine the status of a candidate for EU membership at the summit on June 23-24.
As UNIAN reported earlier today, information appeared in the media that the EU leaders in Brussels would approve the recommendation of the European Commission to grant Ukraine and Moldova the status of a candidate for membership in European Union.
