Georgia will receive support the establishment of visa-free regime with the EU at the upcoming Riga Summit of Eastern Partnership, according to the minister.

"The main topic is the implementation of reforms which are defined by the Association Agreement and the agenda of the association. We need very strong support of the European Union, its members, and we have that support. They assured us of this support in the future, and we will work actively in this regard. We also talked about the future European and Euro-Atlantic integration of Georgia. Our ultimate goal is the membership in the European Union and NATO. We have full support of Poland, the Baltic countries, particularly Latvia. The Riga summit will be held next year, where we will have the support of Latvia, and we plan to get the support for the visa-free regime," Petriashvili said.
