“Throughout this period, we engaged in diverse meetings with ministers from Austria, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Greece, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Finland, Croatia, and Cyprus. We also initiated legal forums, where discussions encompassed topics ranging from Georgian laws harmonization with European law. These meetings, which were not merely routine but the completion of extensive preparatory work, witnessed unanimous support from all ministers for granting candidate status to Georgia. When presenting comprehensive details about the implemented reforms, these ministers unequivocally affirmed that Georgia merits a fair decision. This fair decision has been made through the European Commission.
Moreover, a law has been introduced in the parliament, prescribing that the Ministry of Justice will take the helm in the process of aligning Georgian law with EU law. A specially developed computer program will measure this progress,” the Minister added.
