Georgian parliament adopts statement on Vilnius summit
Tbilisi, Georgia, Nov.28
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
The Georgian parliament is expressing its readiness to take all necessary measures to ensure the signing of the association agreement between Georgia and the EU in 2014, a statement from the Georgian parliament adopted on Nov.27 said.
Parliament confirms its full support to the country's president and government in connection with the initialling of the association agreement with the EU at the Vilnius summit, the statement said.
According to the statement, Georgia believes that the international community and democratic world will strengthen the efforts to support the Eastern Partnership countries and protection of their sovereignty and expresses the hope that in the process of Euro-integration, the Eastern Partnership countries will have full freedom of choice.
In addition, parliament calls on the EU to increase and strengthen the help tools to Eastern Partnership countries so they would become more democratic and create more intensive relations among nations. Meanwhile, the majority hopes the EU will make an ambitious project of the Eastern Partnership more effective, flexible and result-oriented.
The majority worked out this statement after the National Movement asked parliament to make a statement on developments in the Ukraine.
It is noteworthy that parliament rejected the proposal of the minority that demanded a clause be put into the statement about Russia's pressure on its neighbours to hinder their Euro-integration is unacceptable. Despite the attempts, the sides couldn't agree on a single document.
