European Parliament praises Georgia’s EU-integration progress

Members of European Parliament (MEPs) recognise Georgia’s reform progress. A MEPs delegation headed by Elmar Brok, Chairman of the European Parliament Committee on Foreign Affairs, are paying a visit to Georgia.

“We support Georgia’s territorial integrity and we do not recognise Russia’s occupational policy,” Brok said after a meeting held at Georgia’s Foreign Ministry.

The delegation also met Georgia’s President Giorgi Margvelashvili and Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili. The sides talked about the current tense situation at Georgia’s occupied regions and nearby villages.

Brok said his delegation would later today arrive in Khurvaleti, one of Georgian villages bordering the Russian occupied Georgian region of Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) and would see the situation on the ground.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister’s press office said the MEPs welcomed Georgia’s reform progress, especially the Interior Ministry, Prosecutor’s Office and justice reforms.

“They also said Georgia had shown great progress in its Euro-integration process,” the press office said.

The sides reconfirmed implementation of Georgia’s Association Agreement with the European Union (EU) was the key priority in Georgia-EU relations.
