Donald Tusk, President of the European Council assessed Russia’s decision, in particular, the ban on flights to Georgia as unfair.
President of the European Council made this statement at the joint briefing with Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili.
“Russia’s decision on flights ban to Georgia is disproportionate, unfair and unjustified. The EU stands in solidarity with Georgia and we fully affirm the territorial integrity of Georgia.
We share common values. Georgia has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to democratic reforms, to establish the rule of law. All this is based on very strong decisions”, – said President of the European Council.
According to Donald Tusk, the judicial system is gaining more public confidence in Georgia and the economy becomes much more attractive for foreign investments.
