European countries agree to give Ukraine immediate representation
Kyiv: European countries France, Germany, Italy and Romania have agreed to give Ukraine immediate representation.
According to the World News Agency, European countries strongly supported Ukraine’s request to join the European Union, and immediately gave Ukraine its representative status.
This was announced by European countries during their visit to Ukraine. This is the first joint visit by the French president, German chancellor, Italian prime minister and Romanian president since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February.
It is to be noted that the heads of European countries made this visit at a time when the European Union is going to formulate its recommendations on Ukraine’s membership next week.
During a press briefing in Kyiv, German Chancellor Olaf Schulz stressed the need to meet all the conditions for joining the European Union, saying that Ukraine was part of the European family.
French President Emmanuel Macron also said the 27-member European Union should stand by Ukraine until victory over Russia. Italian Prime Minister Mario Dargai and Romanian President Claus Owens also pledged support for Ukraine.
Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called Russia’s continued aggression a war against the European Union and said that the most effective weapon against it was to join the European Union.
It should be noted that the 27 member states of the European Union will decide on Ukraine’s membership in the summit on June 23 and 24.
