The fourth high-level EU-Georgia Strategic Security Dialogue took place on 25 November 2021 in Brussels. The meeting reflected the commitment and interest of both parties to take forward their cooperation in the area of foreign and security policy, in line with the EU-Georgia Association Agreement.
The meeting discussed the conflict dynamics in the Georgian regions of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali region/South Ossetia, including recent developments on the ground in relation with Russia. They also stressed the importance of the implementation of the EU mediated 2008 ceasefire agreement.
Both sides once again highlighted the important role of the EU Monitoring Mission for peace and security in Georgia, and underlined the necessity of full implementation of its mandate. The EU reaffirmed its unwavering support for Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognised borders.
The EU expressed appreciation for Georgia’s valuable contribution to the EU Common Security and Defence Policy, particularly through Georgia’s participation in EU-led crisis management operations and missions in the Central African Republic and the Republic of Mali, and Georgia’s role as a transit hub during the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
