Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky praised on Friday the European Union countries' decision to launch negotiations for Ukraine and Moldova's accession to the European bloc, describing the measure as a "historic step."

Zelensky said - in a tweet on his account on the X platform - that he is looking forward to next week when Ukraine and the European Union will hold the first intergovernmental conference to begin the negotiation process effectively ... adding: “Millions of Ukrainians and even generations of our people are realizing their European dream.”

He pointed out that "Ukraine is returning to Europe, to which it belonged for centuries as a full member of the European community."

Belgium - which currently holds the presidency of the European Union - confirmed that the ambassadors of the 27 EU countries have agreed on the negotiating framework, indicating that the negotiations will officially launch on June 25.
