The Union wants to ensure that there are opportunities for accession candidates to participate even before full EU membership. The Union accuses the Chancellor of “unacceptable” lack of clarity.

The federal government should work to ensure that these three countries are already at the European Council on 23./23. According to an application made available to the German Press Agency, the status of EU accession candidate will be granted on June 1. “It is in our interest to open up a path to the European Union for Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia,” says Gunther Krichbaum, the group’s European policy spokesman, the dpa.

The Union wants the federal government We also call on the accession process to work towards opening up new opportunities for participation in joint programs such as those in the common foreign, security and defense policy below full membership. This also applies to the areas of research, energy, transport and climate protection.

Union: Scholz isolates Germany

One must continue to consistently demand that the accession candidates meet the criteria for democracy, human rights and the rule of law, as well as stepping up the fight against corruption. They would also have to implement the EU decisions on the common foreign and security policy immediately.

“Since the process leading to membership is often long, we call for the creation of a new model that already enables close ties to the European Union before full membership,” explains Krichbaum.


Patricia Lips, the deputy leader of the parliamentary group responsible for Europe, accuses the federal government of hesitating on this issue and of isolating Germany more and more from its international partners.

“The lack of clarity on the part of the Federal Chancellor on this very important issue is unacceptable. With our motion, we will make the coalition have to show its colors,” said the CDU MP to the dpa. (dpa)
