Borrell says EU works on Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine candidate status much quicker than ever

Asked about Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, awaiting for candidate status next month, Josep Borrell, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Monday said, “I cannot advance what the [European] Commission’s Opinion will be, but we are working on it much quicker than ever.”

Today, the third EU-Canada Joint Ministerial Committee meeting takes place in Brussels, co-chaired by the Josep Borrell, and Canadian Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly, with the participation of foreign affairs ministers from the EU member states.

The meeting includes the joint response to Russia’s unprovoked and brutal war on Ukraine and its global ramifications. The Joint Ministerial Committee also discusses bilateral security and defence cooperation and the EU-NATO strategic partnership as well as a number of other shared foreign policy priorities, the European Council said.
