Georgia has been a very reliable and loyal partner of the European Union, - stated Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili during a panel discussion in Davos.

Georgian PM pledged the Georgian government to do “the maximum in order to get closer to the EU, get closer to the ultimate goal which is full-fledged EU membership.”

"Georgia has been a very reliable and loyal partner of the European Union. And this is a choice of our people, it does not belong only to the Georgian government, but is a choice, I would say, it is a civilizational choice of the Georgian people. And we have been we loyal, very keen partner to the EU because we share the same values, same principles.

In 2014, we signed Association Agreement (AA), this is the main document, this is a roadmap for our ultimate goal which is the full-fledged EU membership. Since then, of course, we have a free trade agreement, and we have some tangible results such as a visa-free regime which is also very important to the Georgian citizens. And of course, just recently, we have submitted the application for the EU membership.

Whatever brings us closer to the EU, to the EU membership, is of course acceptable for us because we have no other alternative. As I said, this is the choice of the Georgian people and we will do whatever we can, we will do the maximum in order to get closer to the EU, get closer to the ultimate goal which is full-fledged EU membership,” the PM underscored.
