Our primary task was to bring relations with the United States, the European Union and NATO to a qualitatively new level and to present Georgia’s enhanced strategic role in the region; I would like to proudly note that these relations are at the highest historical level today, – Prime Minister of Georgia Mamuka Bakhtadze underlines in his statement published on Facebook today.
According to Mamuka Bakhtadze, the international position of the country has never been so strong and it needs special caution and further enhancement.
“European integration – this is not only our political choice, as politicians often think, European integration is a civilized choice of our nation. Today we are associated members of EU, we have a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area Agreement (DCFTA) with the EU, visa liberalization, which gave our people direct and tangible results. Today, Georgia is closer to a European family than ever”, – Mamuka Bakhtadze stated.
He noted that all partners unanimously acknowledge that Georgia is a leader among Eastern Partner countries.
“Until Georgia becomes an EU member, I consider Georgia’s membership in the European Economic Area as the best mechanism for Georgia’s integration into Europe”, – Mamuka Bakhtadze added.
