The EU member states have developed a common position on the issue of granting Georgia, Ukraine and Moldova the status of a candidate for membership on the eve of the summit on June 23-24, French Minister for European Affairs Clement Bon said.

"We had a discussion that allowed us to demonstrate a broad consensus, I would even say a complete consensus on the consideration of these dossiers. And especially about Ukraine, the opportunity to recognize the status of a candidate as soon as possible," Bohn said on tuesday following a meeting of the EU Council on General Issues.

The Minister-delegate clarified that when considering applications from Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia, "each dossier is considered in a specific way on conditions" determined by the European Commission and different for each country.

At the same time, Bon warned that granting candidate status does not mean immediate accession to the EU – "this is a long and complex process."

On June 17, the European Commission published conclusions on applications for EU membership of Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia, recommending that the first two be granted candidate status.

In the case of Georgia, the European perspective was confirmed, but the status was promised to it only after several reforms.
