In a few weeks, Georgia will have an answer as to whether it will become a candidate for membership in the EU.

Ambassador of France to Georgia, Diego Colas, representative of the country currently serving as President of the EU Council declares in an interview with Georgia Today, that he will be a little bit prudent before speculating what the European Council and the member states in the European Council will decide.

“It’s hard to know what the decision will be. I’m a little bit prudent before speculating what the European Council and the member states in the European Council will decide. The accession process is a very long one of meeting standards and conditions. My invitation would be for everyone to realize this is a long haul. I understand that this is very spectacular right now because there might be, for the first time, recognition of some sort of European perspective. So far, Georgia has been saying “We have European aspirations,” – but the EU has never said – “We agree with you that this is a shared perspective!”. That makes the whole process very unique, very spectacular. But we need to be aware that this is a very long process, and if we are disappointed with where we are at this stage, it doesn’t matter very much, given the length of the race. For that reason, I would invite everyone to keep a sense of perspective of this whole process”, - the Ambassador noted in an interview.
