Publish Time 2014-12-09 12:11:00


Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany Frank-Walter Stainmeier completed his 2-day visit to Georgia. He already left Tbilisi.

According to Stainmeier, Georgia keeps on its European integration path and Germany does not recognize the agreement about alliance and integration signed between Russia and Georgia’s one of two occupied regions of Abkhazia. He reiterated Germany’s support to Georgia’s territorial integrity and state sovereignty.

German Foreign Minister held negotiations with Georgian authorities, Prime Minister and Georgia’s President Giorgi Margvelashvili. The sides discussed problems across Georgia’s occupied regions, relations between the two countries, crisis in Ukraine and the situation in the Caucasus region.

Stainmeier said that Angela Merkel, German Chancellor would visit Georgia in spring of 2015. He also came out with the initiative to hold Georgian-German business forum.

Very little time is left till visa-free travel between Georgia and the EU, - German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier stated at the joint press-conference after meeting his Georgian counterpart Tamar Beruchashvili.

According to him, the Association Agreement with the EU is a real and very comprehensive document which represents a stimulus in terms of Georgia’s reforms and modernization.

As per Steinmeier, time and energy are necessary in order for the Georgian population to receive a real profit from it. ‘’Germany tries to do it together with Georgia but the Association Agreement is not the only act or the only document between Georgia and the EU.

Visa liberalization also takes place and in fact one step is left till the visa-free travel. From my point of view this process will be irreversible. Georgia has a clear and transparent commitment which should be completed now,’’ German Foreign Minister said.
