The Georgian Prime Minister’s official visit to the Republic of Lithuania started with a meeting with his Lithuanian counterpart.
Saulius Skvernelis hosted Mamuka Bakhtadze at the Office of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania.
During the face-to-face meeting, the parties discussed the positive developmental dynamics in bilateral relations, including the growing trade and economic ties, and Georgia’s progress on its path to European and Euro-Atlantic integration.
After the meeting, enhanced-format negotiations were held with the participation of the two countries’ Cabinet members and MPs.
Special emphasis was placed on the key issues on the political dialogue agenda between the two countries. The Georgian side underscored the significant support of the Republic of Lithuania across a variety of areas, including the implementation of successful reforms. The meeting also pointed out the untapped potential for deeper economic relations and prospects of jointly implementing regionally important projects.
One of the key issues during the meeting revolved around the new formats of cooperation with the EU, which will further spur Georgia’s European integration, also the challenges facing the country, and the dire humanitarian situation in the occupied territories.
The Georgian side thanked the Government of Lithuania for firmly supporting Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
From the Georgian side, the enhanced-format negotiations between the Prime Ministers were attended by Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani and Head of the Georgia-Lithuania Parliamentary Friendship Group MP Beka Odisharia.
