French President Emmanuel Macron called on the EU to "rethink" its policy towards the accession of Ukraine and other countries to the EU.

He said this on the eve of the summit of the European political community in Chisinau, writes Le Monde.

Macron called on the European Union to rethink its governance and "invent multiple formats" to satisfy the membership aspirations of Eastern Europe and the Balkans.

"This is the only way to meet the legitimate expectations of the Western Balkans, Moldova and Ukraine, which should join the European Union, and to maintain geopolitical efficiency," the French leader said.

French President Emmanuel Macron also said that Western countries should provide Ukraine with "tangible and reliable security guarantees," because today the Ukrainian military defends Europe and are very well armed.
