No 361-E

At his meeting in Tallinn yesterday with Georgian Foreign Minister Gregory Vashadze, Foreign Minister Urmas Paet said that following the parliamentary elections in Georgia it is essential to have a peaceful and stable start to the work of the new parliament and to create and launch a new government.

“We support Georgia’s aspirations to join NATO and strengthen ties with the European Union,” Paet noted.  “Hopefully negotiations for the Association Agreement between  the European Union and Georgia will be wrapped up next year and the action plan for visa facilitation will be approved before the end of this year,” he added.

Paet stated that Estonia supports discussing NATO enlargement at the next NATO foreign ministers’ meeting in December, as well as having a meeting of the NATO-Georgia Council within the framework of the meeting.

Georgian Foreign Minister Vashadze confirmed that Georgia will continue moving towards the European Union and NATO. “We are grateful to Estonia for the support it has given us,” he added.
