As News Georgia learned from the Representation of the European Commission in Georgia, today Bildt has a preplanned meeting with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili. On Friday, July 17, the "trio" is holding talks with EU monitoring mission (EUMM) in Zugdidi and Shida Kartli. Later the meetings with Chairman of Parliament David Bakradze, First Deputy Foreign Minister Georgy Bokeria, Vice Prime Minister of Georgia Georgy Baramidze and State Minister for Reintegration Temur Yakobashvili are planned in Tbilisi.
On Saturday, July 18, the "trio" will meet with Georgia's parliamentary and non-parliamentary opposition and government officials.
On Sunday morning, July 19 the delegation is leaving Tbilisi for Baku.
It will be remembered that Swedish Foreign Minister is visiting Georgia as part of his July 16-20 Caucasian tour. Remarkably, the EU's visit to Georgia as a trio will be the first after the August 2008 war.
As Georgia Times reported earlier, Karel Kovanda and John Kjayer of the European Commission, EU Special Envoy to South Caucasus Peter Semneby and EU Secretariat Representative Paolo Barroso will take part in the trip. Spain's Special Envoy to Central Asia Santiago Chamorro will represent the next EU presiding country.
