The MPs of the European Parliament adopted the resolution that welcomes the reforms in Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova and states that the former Soviet countries can become the members of the EU as Radio Liberty reported.
This resolution was adopted on November 15 and it also allows the collective pressure on Russia to settle the Donbas conflict, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Transnistria conflicts. Also, the MPs consider supporting the deployment of the armed police mission of OSCE.
Also, the significant progress of the reforms’ implementation was welcomed.
‘The MPs of the European Parliament noted the significant progress since the holding of the last ‘Eastern Partnership’ summit in Riga in 2015’.
However, the decision on the membership of these countries in the EU will not be made at this summit. According to the MPs, it is necessary to discuss the things that were achieved but it is also important to discuss what should be done.
The resolution preceded the ‘Eastern Partnership’ summit that will take place on November 24 in Brussels. It was created in 2009 to strengthen the cooperation between the EU and Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.
Moreover, the EU Parliament recommended to support Georgia, Ukraine and Moldova and to open the trust fund for these countries to provide the private and public investments into development of the social and economic infrastructure. Also, one of the goals of this decision is to support the economic reforms ‘aimed at phasing out monopolies, limiting the role of oligarchs, and preventing money-laundering and tax evasion’.
