Georgia, Tbilisi, July 13 / Trend N. Kirtskhalia /
Georgia's joining the project "Eastern Partnership" is of great importance for further integration into the EU, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said after a meeting in Tbilisi with his Georgian counterpart Grigol Vashadze.
He said that Poland intends to provide all possible assistance for Georgia's integration into NATO and the EU. Eastern Partnership does not imply membership in the EU, but is of great importance in terms of integration into European structures. We have repeatedly demanded that the countries included in this program to use special privileges, as opposed to those countries not included in the program, and visa-free communication to be established, " he said.
"We will always assist Georgia's integration into NATO and the EU. We are glad that talks on associate membership have been already launched. Visa regime between Georgia and EU countries is simplified. But we all support the initiative to intensify this process," Sikorski said.
He said that Warsaw supported the plan for Georgian assigning MAP at the NATO summit in Bucharest, which, however, failed to implement. "But Poland will always support your country on the path of integration in the Atlantic Alliance", Sikorski said.
