MEPs will debate the outcome of the 23-24 June EU summit with European Council President Charles Michel and Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. Heads of state or government granted EU candidate status to Ukraine and to the Republic of Moldova. They also stated that Georgia should become an EU candidate, once it has addressed the priorities specified in the Commission’s opinion on Georgia’s membership application. In addition, EU leaders discussed Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine, the follow-up to the Conference on the Future of Europe, the EU’s relations with its European partners and economic issues. Ahead of the European Council, EU leaders also met with their Western Balkan counterparts.
