Georgia: EU and NATO are only associations to join

2012-11-14 12:55

Despite the coming to power of the new political forces in Georgia, the country remains committed to the policy of joining NATO and the European Union. Simultaneously Tbilisi intends to restore relations with Moscow.


According to the new head of the Foreign Ministry Maya Panjikidze, Georgia's pro-Western course remains immutable.

"This is the choice of the Georgian people. And any government should follow the will of the people. The course of European and Euro-Atlantic integration remains unchanged for the simple reason: mankind has not invented anything better than democracy and well-developed democratic institutions. This course is a manifestation of our natural craving for Europe", Maya Panjikidze said in an interview to the Kommersant.

At the same time, on Tuesday President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz spoke out for the normalization of relations between Russia and Georgia, while welcoming the commitment to the new Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili to this, the RIA Novosti reports.

"I welcome the commitment of the Government of Georgia to get closer to the EU as much as possible and, on the other hand, to improve relations with Russia. This is certainly an important step in a constructive direction", Schultz told reporters after the meeting with Ivanishvili, who is now on his first official visit to Brussels.
