He thanked von der Leyen for the positive conclusion of the European Commission on granting Ukraine candidate status. In this context, Zelensky said that Ukraine would carry on with the course of pro-European reforms.
"Together with European Council President Charles Michel, we've coordinated steps on the eve of the historic European Council session to be held on June 23-24," Zelensky added.
He thanked the EU leaders for their faith in Ukraine's European future.
The European Commission on June 17 recommended that the European Council confirm Ukraine's perspective to become a member of the EU and grant it candidate status.
