On 1 March, European Council President Charles Michel met President of Georgia Salome Zourabichvili to discuss the current situation and strengthen the ties between Georgia and the EU.
After the meeting, Michel said he had tried to do his best over the last months to support “all the positive efforts for stability, for economic reforms, and for democratic reforms in Georgia”. He added: “We are very clear, together with the European Commission and the European Parliament – we want to demonstrate our clear and concrete support to maintain all the efforts, to strengthen the ties between Georgia and the EU.”
According to a press release, the two leaders have identified the important priorities on which both sides should work together: “We will be totally committed because in these extremely difficult times, it is very important to stick together, to express a very clear message of support for international law, the rules-based international order, the multilateral approach and full respect for the UN Charter.”
