According to her, during the visit the head of the European Council will hold meetings with Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, as well as Speaker David Bakradze. During the meetings they will address topical issues of relations between Georgia and the EU.
"During the visit the President of the European Council will discuss current issues in relations between Georgia and the EU as well as political issues. As for the meeting in the EUMM, despite the fact that the mission does not perform its functions on the whole territory of Georgia, we still attach great importance to its work and advocate that the EU mission should be maintained in Georgia", the News-Georgia led Kalandadze's words.
Last year the mandate of the EU Monitoring Mission in Georgia was extended until September 14, 2012.
The UN and OSCE missions ended their work in Georgia in 2009, in connection with the position taken by Russia. Thus, the EU is the only organization whose observers are on Georgian territory, but they cannot carry out monitoring directly in conflict zones.
