Georgia must seize the opportunity presented by the U.K.’s departure from the European Union to push its case for integration leading to membership of the bloc – Georgia’s President Salome Zurabishvili said in an interview with Bloomberg.
“We are looking at this situation with the determination to get the most out of it,” Georgian President said in the interview. “There is a logic that the country that has been steadily moving toward and wanting Europe can’t be treated less than the country that’s steadily moving away from Europe.”
As for membership of NATO, “Militarily, we are absolutely ready,” Zurabishvili said. “If we were to get the Membership Action Plan, everybody knows that we would be ready in two months.”
