Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 7 Jul.'17 / 14:43

The Parliaments of Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine released a joint statement, pledging to assist each other on the European integration path and calling on the European Council to open the EU membership perspective at the Eastern Partnership Summit in Brussels on November 24, 2017. 

The joint statement, signed by the Georgian, Moldovan and Ukrainian Parliamentary Chairmen on July 3, recognizes “the significance of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) as an effective and strong mechanism for promoting democracy, rule of law and sustainable economic development” in the three Eastern Partnership countries.

The Parliamentary Chairmen are “convinced” that the EaP Summit Declaration “shall express unequivocal support to territorial integrity and sovereignty of Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, as well as uphold the European choice and agenda of our countries.”

“We, the parliaments of Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine call on the European Parliament to adopt a Resolution prior to the EaP Summit reflecting political support and reaffirming the appeal to the European Council to opening the Perspective of Membership to the three Associated Countries in line with Article 49 of the Treaty of the European Union,” the statement also reads. 

“With this ambitious and forward looking statement,” the Chairmen added, the Eastern Partnership Summit Declaration “shall carry a powerful signal in the currently strained geopolitical situation and shall become an inspiring instrument to accelerate further progress and democratic transformation of the three associated partners of the EU.”
