Kuleba, Borrell speak ahead of EU summit


Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has talked to EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell ahead of the European Council summit, which is due to consider granting Ukraine candidate status.

Kuleba wrote this on Twitter, Ukrinform reports.

“I spoke with Josep Borrell in the run-up to the historic EU summit this week. Ukraine’s EU candidate status will draw a line under decades of ambiguity and set it in stone: Ukraine is Europe, not part of the ‘Russian world’. Grateful to HR/VP for supporting Ukraine on our path,” Kuleba said.

On June 17, the European Commission published its opinions on EU membership bids from Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia and recommended that the first two countries be granted candidate status. The European Council is expected to consider the issue at a summit on June 23-24 and make a final decision.
