President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has signed Ukraine’s Parliament and Government joint statement on achieving full membership in the European Union, AzVision.az reports citing the Ukrainian media.
Zelensky noted that signing the joint statement has the same meaning as signing an application for joining the EU.
“We've been approaching candidate status for 115 days and our path to membership shouldn't take decades. We have to get there as soon as possible. It depends on us. We have to do our part perfectly to enable our friends in the EU to do the same quickly and in a consolidative manner to adopt another historic decision for us," Zelensky said.
