Ukraine's Zelenskiy and France's Macron to travel to EU summit together

PARIS, Feb 9 (Reuters) - Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy and French President Emmanuel Macron will travel together to attend a European Union summit later on Thursday, Macron's office said in a statement.

Zelenskiy takes his mini-tour of European capitals to Brussels on Thursday, aiming to push European Union leaders for more weapons in the fight against Russia's invasion and for a quick start to EU membership talks.

Zelenskiy, who visited London and Paris on Wednesday, is expected to attend a summit of EU leaders and address the European Parliament during his trip to the Belgian capital.
