The Prime Minister of Georgia Irakli Garibashvili has received his first invitation from German Chancellor Angela Merkel to visit Germany.
The news was announced today by David Magradze, a Foreign Affairs Service adviser of the Administration of the Government of Georgia.
He said the leaders of two countries would hold a face-to-face meeting when Garibashvili visited Germany.
"The discussion will focus on bilateral and multilateral cooperation,” Magradze said.
Garibashvili is expected to meet the German Chancellor in early June, a few days before Georgia is set to sign the Association Agreement (AA), including the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area component, with the European Union.
Magradze believed Merkel’s invitation for Garibashvili to visit Germany held special importance and was necessary to be held before the country signed the AA document.
German Chancellor Merkel visited Tbilisi in August 17, 2008, as part of international peace efforts following the Russia-Georgia war.
