Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán on Friday said not granting Georgia the European Union membership candidate status in June had been an “unacceptable and immoral” decision by European Union authorities.

In a tweet following a meeting with his Georgian counterpart Irakli Garibashvili, Orbán noted the EU had “left Georgia behind” by not including the country in its granting of membership candidate status to Moldova and Ukraine.

“While the EU made a good decision to offer membership to Ukraine and Moldova, Brussels has left Georgia behind. This is unacceptable and immoral, we need Georgia in the EU”, Orbán tweeted.
