Turkish and Georgian Foreign Ministers, Mevlut Cavusoglu and Ilia Darchiashvili, Thursday discussed the topical issues of the two countries.
During the joint press point, FM Cavusoglu said the parties touched on “the important issues of strategic partnership and good neighbourly relations between the countries.”
Cavusoglu stressed, “we attach great importance to the economic relations between Georgia and Turkey.”
“Our trade turnover is quite impressive. It topped two billion dollars last year. However, the leaders of our countries set a goal for the turnover to surpass three billion dollars in the coming years. We should activate our cooperation in this regard.
We think the free trade mechanism should be more active, and some changes might be made to boost its usefulness and achieve better results for the interests of the two countries. For that, we are planning to hold a meeting of the mixed economic commission shortly.
We believe the situation is more in favour of Turkey now, and we should balance it so that these relations are as beneficial as possible for Georgia. Thus, we are going to activate efforts in this regard,” Cavusoglu underscored.
-Fully support sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia.
-Our trade target is $3 billion.
-Will further advance transport connectivity in our region, particularly the Middle Corridor. 🇹🇷🇬🇪 pic.twitter.com/5uFM3H9Uyd
