The Chief Executive has congratulated Ukraine and Moldova and has also highlighted the importance of having also recognized the status of candidate country for Georgia and the commitment to begin negotiations with Bosnia and Herzegovina. “The Twenty-Seven We recognize the effort that all of them are making”has underlined.
Sources from the Spanish delegation have highlighted the message that is especially sent to Ukraine support its population in the difficult times they are experiencing and in the face of the position and statements of the Russian president, Vladimir Putin.
They consider it symbolic that the Hungarian Prime Minister, Victor Orbánwas absent from the room so as not to be present at the time when the start of negotiations with this country was agreed, a formula with which they emphasize that the important thing is that the veto he maintained on this matter could be overcome.
Furthermore, they emphasize that this fact does not prevent the decision to open negotiations from being formally adopted by unanimity of the European Council.
