Georgian PM discusses Georgia's EU membership bid in Brussels

Georgia's application for European Union membership, as well as the progress made by the country in implementing the 2014 EU-Georgia Association Agreement and related democratic reforms were discussed on Tuesday in a meeting between Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili and President of the European Council Charles Michel.

The meeting focused on the process of reviewing the country’s membership application - including the European Commission questionnaire, both parts of which were completed by Georgia ahead of schedule - as well as the progress made in implementing the Association Agreement and relevant democratic reforms, the Government Administration said.

Garibashvili highlighted the “historic choice” of Georgia to “return to the European family,” and stressed the importance of the opinion of the European Commission on granting a candidate status to Georgia, along with a relevant decision by the European Council.

The head of the Georgian Government also thanked Michel for his “personal efforts” in supporting Georgia on its path to European integration.
