President of Ukraine met with the President of the European Council

During a working visit to Georgia, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with President of the European Council Charles Michel.

At the beginning of the conversation, the President of Ukraine thanked the President of the European Council for the support in holding the first meeting in the "EU + Associated Trio" (Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova) format at the highest level and willingness to promote further rapprochement of associate partners with the European Union.

"It is very important that you were present at this meeting. Our peoples deserve a European perspective, given, in particular, that the amount of obligations of our three states under the association agreements can be compared with the obligations of the current countries - candidates for EU membership," said the President of Ukraine.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Charles Michel discussed preparations for the Ukraine-EU Summit scheduled for October this year.

The President of Ukraine offered to consider a number of initiatives to develop practical cooperation between the Associated Trio and the EU, which would benefit both citizens and businesses. These include the implementation of joint infrastructure projects, interaction in the sphere of transport, energy, health, security and defense, the digital market and trade.
