UK, Germany to support Georgia’s territorial integrity

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas signed a Joint Declaration on foreign and security policy cooperation. The joint declaration also outlines a common approach to pressing foreign policy issues with Eastern Europe and the Southern Caucasus.

“We reaffirm our shared commitment to security, stability, prosperity, democracy and the rule of law in Eastern Europe and the Southern Caucasus and support multilateral cooperation. We continue to support reform processes in all six countries of the region to achieve tangible progress for the public and increase the partner countries’ resilience to internal and external shocks. We emphasize the importance of sustainable reform implementation, particularly regarding the rule of law and good governance and pressing issues, including climate change.

With regard to the Southern Caucasus, we underline our support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia and for the full implementation of the 2008 ceasefire agreement. On the conflict on Nagorno Karabakh, we stress the need for a lasting political solution between Armenia and Azerbaijan as the only way for rapprochement and reconciliation of the two people,“ reads the document.
