EU Council to confirm Ukraine, Moldova' candidature

Brussels, June 23 (UNI/Sputnik) The EU Council will unanimously support granting the European Union candidate status to Ukraine and Moldova during the upcoming summit, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said on Thursday.
"Today’s Council has a special meaning as we are going to unanimously confirm the EU candidacy status for Ukraine and Moldova. It is a very important political decision that the EU is taking as a response to the unjustified invasion of Russia to Ukraine," Mitsotakis said before the summit.
Meanwhile, Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo said that giving the candidate status to Ukraine is a "symbolic" gesture, adding that EU accession will require a lot of time and reforms.
