This visit is particularly symbolic to me as our countries are celebrating 300th Anniversary of friendship this year.
Naturally, when we talk about friendship of our nations and people, we cannot help recalling Anthim the Iberian, King Vakhtang VI, Constantin Brâncoveanu. Their contribution to the development of Georgian-Romanian relations is truly priceless”, – Mamuka Bakhtadze stated.
Mamuka Bakhtadze drew attention to the development of bilateral relations in the Black Sea context and the possibility of deepening economic ties with other countries.
“Today, as never before, it is important to ensure security at the Black Sea and this is the message, which we have been trying to convey to our western friends for over years, as we believe that no security of Europe or Euro-Atlantic society may be deemed without security in the Black Sea region. Hence, it is particularly gratifying for us that context of the Black Sea is becoming more crucial as time passes.
We welcome the decision made by the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance (NATO) at the Ministerial of Foreign Affairs held in Washington D.C. endorsing the relevant package, as it is aimed at a greater and more active engagement of NATO in the Black Sea region, along with an increased support towards Georgia and Ukraine”, – Prime Minister added.
