Sweden and Georgia's foreign ministers Carl Bildt and Grigol Vashadze met in Stockholm. The meeting discussed key issues on the bilateral agenda, which include Georgia's European integration, ongoing reforms in the country and coordination of actions to restore the country's territorial integrity.

"We enjoy Sweden's support on the way to integration into the European structures, and in this regard our future relations were considered," Vashadze said after the meeting.

Carl Bildt in his turn stressed that Georgia is a good example of successful democracy development in the former Soviet Union space. He said during the meeting they discussed the reforms carried out by the Georgian government on the way to the country's democratization.

"Relations between Georgia and Sweden largely depend on the cooperation between Georgia and the EU," Bildt said. "Sweden supports the ongoing reforms in Georgia, which is the basis for the country's European integration".

Ministers also touched upon the liberation of the Georgian regions - Abkhazia and South Ossetia, where, according to Vashadze, human rights are violated every day. The sides discussed possible joint actions within the UN and the OSCE to liberate these regions.
