“We will definitely lead Georgia to the ultimate goal, which is the full-fledged membership of our country in the European Union, said Georgian Foreign Minister, Ilia Darchiashvili at a briefing.
Speaking about the Opinion of the European Commission on the application for EU membership submitted by Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova, the Minister noted that Georgia will continue to work on the agenda of the country’s ambitious reforms.
“Georgia will continue to work on the agenda of our country’s ambitious reforms. As for the issue of conditionality, this is not new and there is a practice for countries wishing to join the EU. The Baltic countries also had a similar practice.
Therefore, we will definitely continue to move towards our ultimate goal in this direction, and with our daily efforts, in accordance with the ambitious reform agenda, we will definitely lead Georgia to the ultimate goal, which is our full membership in the EU,” the Minister said.
European Commission recommended the European Council grant Georgia the European perspective but said it will come back and assess how it meets a number of conditions before giving it the candidate status.
