During the Batumi international conference, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky demanded a substantive conversation from Brussels about the prospects for the country’s accession to the European Union.
“The Eastern Partnership Summit is to be held in December. This is very important, but the EU’s lack of a strategic vision of the goals of this partnership makes this format less substantive and half-alive. We don’t need a summit for a summit. People are dying here, we are at war, we need political content and a geopolitical vision for the future of this initiative, otherwise the expediency of this in general is not clear, ”he said.
According to the Ukrainian president, the December event should demonstrate how important Ukraine is for the EU.
“The next summit should show a clear vision of relations with closest partners from the EU. We will support this initiative only to the extent that it is conducive to the reality of our European aspirations, ”he stressed.
At the same time, Zelenskiy expressed the hope that Ukraine will eventually become a member of the EU.
“I believe that together with you we will reach this dream and together we will designate the replenishment of the European family with three sisters – Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova,” he said.
In addition, Zelenskiy criticized the fact that Ukraine was not invited to the Conference on the Future of Europe.
“We do not understand why the voice of our state does not sound today at the Conference on the Future of Europe. Are we not part of her future? If one of the countries is not important for the future of Europe, then this is not the Europe of the future, ”he said.
According to Zelensky, the proof that Europe needs Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova could be giving them the prospect of EU membership.
He also claims that the presence of the Russian military contingent and weapons near the borders of Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova threatens not only these countries, but the whole of Europe.
“If Brussels does not show iron support for the European aspirations of our three countries, then someone is demonstrating the iron muscles of his weapon near our three state borders. And this, in my opinion, is a threat not only for our three countries, but for the entire continent, ”Zelensky concluded.
