Batumi summit: European integration has no alternative for Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova.

Accession to the European Union is a common goal for Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova, which has no alternative.

This was said in the Batumi summit declaration, issued by the heads of states of the Associated Trio and published on the website of the president of Ukraine.

"Accession to the European Union is a goal that unites our three states. European integration has no alternative for our countries and no third party could influence this sovereign choice. We have already achieved considerable progress in our relations with the European Union. Backed by the strong will of our peoples to become a part of the European family, we stand united in our determination to work towards achieving acknowledgement of the European perspective for Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine opening the way for future membership of our three states in the EU," the document reads.

The leaders of the three countries stressed that relations between the Associated Partners and the European Union are founded on the common values on which the EU is built – democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, and the rule of law.

The declaration stated that Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova remain committed to implementing these values and promoting them in relations on the international stage.

At the same time, the heads of state reaffirmed their unwavering commitment to advance further the process of their integration into the European Union through comprehensive reforms aimed at strengthening democratic institutions and the gradual approximation of our legislation in relevant areas to key elements of the EU acquis.

According to the document, Association Agreements with the European Union are key roadmaps for reforms, and their continuous implementation constitutes the groundwork for strengthening political association and further deepening of economic and sectoral integration of the three Associated Partners with the European Union.

"Granting the European perspective to the three Associated Partners will be a strong incentive and provide an impetus for even deeper and more comprehensive reforms. In this context, we recall that pursuant to Article 49 TEU, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine as European states respecting the European values and committed to their promotion may apply to become members of the European Union,” the three presidents stressed.

As reported, President Volodymyr Zelensky makes a working visit to Georgia on Monday.

On May 17, the foreign ministers of Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova signed a memorandum on the establishment of the Associated Trio for the joint successful European integration of the three countries.
