“The European Commission made a fair decision. It is a recognition of the government’s effort to ensure the Georgian people’s choice,” said Justice Minister Rati Bregadze.
According to the Justice Minister, the EC’s recommendation to grant candidate status to Georgia is of utmost importance for the country.
“Following the Constitutional amendments of 2017, the obligation was to take all measures to ensure the historical will of the Georgian people, the successful implementation of Euro-Atlantic integration. Accordingly, the European Commission’s recommendation to grant Georgia candidate status is especially gratifying and significant for our country,” he said.
Rati Bregadze said he was sure Georgia would receive EU candidate status and keep moving forward to the EU’s full membership.
On November 8, the European Commission recommended the European Council to grant candidate status to Georgia.
