Prime Minister of Slovakia Eduard Heger urged Olaf Scholz, German Chancellor, during a visit to Berlin to support Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova as EU membership candidates, writes Politico.
“We have to realize that the enlargement is a must. The world needs Europe to be strong. And the countries are waiting.
Accepting Ukraine or others as official EU membership candidates would just be the first step and that any further progress toward their actual inclusion in the bloc must be “merit-based”. We will not do any shortcuts, we will not lower the criteria”, - said Eduard Heger.
