Lithuania was denied EU candidate status in 1997, but joined the bloc in 2004. So anything is possible. Such a statement made today the Ambassador of Lithuania to Georgia.
“Consolidated efforts are needed from civil society, political parties, leadership and state institutions.
Whether you will receive the status of EU candidate depends on the consensus among the member states, but today we are waiting for the conclusion of the European Commission on the candidate status of Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, which will be followed by the discussion by EU leaders on June 23-24. Let’s wait for the next few hours to see what that conclusion will be”, - said Andrius Kalindra.
