EU should show clear vision of relations with Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova – Zelensky.

President Volodymyr Zelensky believes that the European Union should demonstrate a clear vision of relations with its closest partners – Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova – at the December summit of the Eastern Partnership.

He said this during the opening of the Batumi International Conference on July 19, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The head of state noted that the next Eastern Partnership summit is to take place in December. According to him, this is very important, but the lack of a strategic vision of the Eastern Partnership goals on the part of the European Union makes this format "not so substantive, half-alive."

"We do not need a summit for the sake of a summit. We have people dying, we have a war. We need a political content and a geopolitical vision of the future of this initiative; otherwise, to be honest, the expediency of this in general is not clear. The next summit should show a clear vision of relations with the closest partners on the part of the European Union," Zelensky said.

He added that Ukraine will support the Eastern Partnership initiative "as much as it will contribute to the realization of our European aspirations."

In addition, Zelensky expressed hope that Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova together will achieve this goal and celebrate the replenishment of the European family with "three sisters".

As reported, a Ukrainian delegation led by President Volodymyr Zelensky, after landing at Batumi International Airport on July 19, has left for the contact line between Georgia and its occupied territory – Abkhazia.

During the visit, Zelensky will initiate the activity of the Associated Trio format of Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova at the level of heads of state. The leaders of the three countries will sign a declaration of the Associated Trio summit and will hold a joint meeting with European Council President Charles Michel.
