EU to begin membership talks with Ukraine and Moldova next week

June 21, 2024 — The European Union has given the green light to start membership talks with Ukraine and Moldova next week. This marks a significant step forward in their long journey to join the 27-nation bloc.

Belgium, currently holding the EU presidency, confirmed that member states have agreed on the framework for these negotiations.

"Negotiations will officially begin on Tuesday, June 25, in Luxembourg," the Belgian presidency announced. This follows last year's decision by EU leaders, after a positive evaluation from the EU's executive branch, to start the accession talks with both countries.

However, the path from these initial negotiations to full EU membership for Ukraine and Moldova is expected to be a lengthy one, potentially taking many years.

Summary: The EU will start membership talks with Ukraine and Moldova next week, marking a major milestone in their bid to join the bloc.
