Foreign Minister Mikser commended Georgia’s determined work in implementing reforms

10.02.2017

Today, Foreign Minister Sven Mikser and the State Minister of Georgia on European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Victor Dolidze discussed Estonia-Georgia relations and cooperation in international organisations.

The Foreign Minister congratulated Georgia on the recent decision by the European Parliament to approve visa-free Schengen travel for Georgian citizens.
“Determined work in adopting comprehensive reforms in Georgia is commendable. Visa liberalisation is tangible and will certainly bring Georgia closer to the EU,” said Mikser.

Mikser reaffirmed Estonia’s continuing support for Georgia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty. “What is happening in the occupied territories of Georgia cannot be taken as secondary. It is important for us that a solution is found for the conflict and that the international community’s focus would not shift away from it,” emphasised Mikser.

Foreign Minister highlighted that Georgia is one of the main partners of Estonian development cooperation and the two countries collaborate in ICT, communicating the EU, education and many other areas. Mikser also stressed that Estonia continues to support Georgia’s integration to the EU and NATO and shares its experiences on moving towards Euroatlantic integration.
In addition, ministers discussed Eastern Partnership and the Eastern Partnership Summit taking place in Brussels during the Estonian Presidency of the EU.
