EU leaders will discuss Ukraine candidacy this week
BRUSSELS, 20 June. - (ANA) - European Union (EU) leaders will debate granting candidate status to Ukraine and how to tackle the energy scarcity and food shortage as they gather in Brussels on Thursday and Friday this week for an EU summit.
The debate is expected to be tense, as leaders from France, Germany and Italy said last week on a visit to Kyiv that they support "immediately" granting Ukraine candidate status, while others, mainly the Netherlands remain reluctant.
Ukraine and Moldova should immediately join the EU enlargement queue as candidates, but Georgia isn't ready yet, the EU Commission said. - (ANA) -
