Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Kateryna Zelenko commented on the proposal by Slovenian President Borut Pahor to grant a “special status” to Ukraine and Turkey instead of a full EU membership, reports Ukrinform.
“The strategic goal of Ukraine is full membership in the EU, which is also enshrined in the Constitution of our state. This is the choice of the Ukrainian people, for which we continue to work actively, in particular in the framework of the implementation of the Association Agreement with the EU,” Zelenko said.
She added that the ambassador of Ukraine to the Republic of Slovenia was holding meetings with the official authorities of Ljubljana to inform them about Ukraine’s achievements in the implementation of our strategic goal – membership in the EU and NATO.
Pahor stated at the 14th Bled Strategic Forum that he would suggest a “special status” for Turkey and Ukraine and full EU membership for Western Balkan countries.
