Greek Premier Kyriakos Mitsotakis expressed the government’s support for making Ukraine an official candidate for European Union membership in a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Wednesday.
Mitsotakis assured Zelenskyy of Greece’s continued support for Ukraine, as well as of his personal support for the country’s accession to the EU, his office said.
On his side, Zelenskyy said in a tweet he was “pleased to receive a signal of support from Greece on Ukraine’s candidate status on the eve of the historic session of the European Council.”
The two officials also discussed “the expected outcome of the NATO Summit in Madrid.”
The Ukrainian leader had addressed the Greek Parliament on April 7 in a bid to rally support for his country.
