After the talks concluded, the visiting leaders held a press conference at which they announced the results of the talks and expressed support for Ukraine amid the ongoing military conflict with Russia.

Macron was first to announce that all the present EU members were in support of granting Ukraine immediate candidate status to join the European Union, adding that France will also uphold its promise to deliver six additional long-range Ceasar guns to Ukraine.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz stated that he’d come to Ukraine with a clear message – that Ukraine belongs in the European family and that Germany will support a positive decision on Ukraine and Moldova’s EU membership accession.

Italy’s Draghi also expressed support for Ukraine’s candidate status, stating that “We are at a turning point in our history. The Ukrainian people defend every day the values of democracy and freedom that underpin the European project, our project. We cannot wait. We cannot delay this process.”
