EU chief Charles Michel said he expected the bloc’s leaders to take the “historic” decision Thursday to grant candidate status to war-torn Ukraine and its neighbour Moldova.
“This is a decisive moment for the European Union, this is also a geopolitical choice that we will make today. And I’m confident that today, we will grant the candidate status to Ukraine and to Moldova,” he told journalists ahead of an EU summit.
The European Commission has given recommendations for European Union candidature to Moldova and Ukraine but opted not to recommend Georgia for the same.
