Germans want to continue supporting Ukraine

The latest summit of the European Political Community addressed mainly with the issue of a peaceful Europe. One of the central agendas was the war in Ukraine, according to the Press and Information Office of the Federal Government.

German Federal Chancellor Scholz has emphasised the fact that “Germany will be providing a large amount of support for the task ahead both in financial and humanitarian terms as well as with arms deliveries.”

After the summit in Granada, Spain, Scholz issued a press statement in which he spoke about the threat posed by Russia, adding that it represented a “danger to the security and peace order throughout Europe.”

In this context, the heads of states and governments of the European Political Community (EPC) discussed how they could best support Ukraine in defence of its independence and sovereignty. The German Chancellor emphasised:

After the USA, Germany is providing the most support and we Germans continue to support Ukraine.

Alongside the war in Ukraine, there are other conflicts that have a serious impact on peace and security in Europe. At a meeting with EU Council President Charles Michel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, German Chancellor Scholz raised the issue of Armenia’s security and preventing its further military escalation with Azerbaijan.

Prior to the summit, Scholz also had numerous conversations with the president of Azerbaijan, who did not attend the summit.

Participating heads of states and government also expressed concern about the tense situation between Kosovo and Serbia. Scholz was adamant that efforts to de-escalate the situation must continue in order to ensure that the two countries can continue to establish long-term peaceful relations.

The Chancellor will meet his 26 European Union counterparts again at a small forum on Friday.
