Lithuanian president calls for Ukraine's integration into EU's single market

Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda has said that the European Union should give a European perspective to Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova, including by offering the possibility of their full integration into the EU's single market.

He said this at a meeting of the European Council on Thursday, October 22, Ukrinform reports, with reference to the Office of the President of Lithuania.

"The EU's global role begins in our neighborhood. We must seek the EU's widest possible involvement in the region at a strategic level. We must strive for the most ambitious results of the meeting," Nauseda said.

According to him, is important to give a European perspective to the Association Trio countries - Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova. According to Nauseda, integration into the EU's internal market would be a timely incentive for the associated partners, while other integration could be offered to other Eastern Partnership countries according to their needs.

The EU summit is being held in Brussels on October 21-22. During Thursday's meeting, the heads of state and government discussed the rule of law in the EU, measures to respond to a sharp surge in energy prices, and the coordination of the fight against COVID-19.
