Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili is hosting Deputy Secretary General of the Council of Europe (CoE) Gabriella Battaini-Dragoni and Bulgaria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Daniel Mitov in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi.

The trio sat down a short time ago at the Administration of the Government of Georgia and discussed several issues, mainly the Georgia-CoE 2016-2019 Action Plan and Georgia-Bulgaria relations.

The four-year Action Plan outlined more reforms for Georgia in the human rights and justice sector that would lead to the country implementing high-level European standards in state and public institutions.

The trio also discussed Georgia’s democratic reforms, regional security issues and the current situation in Georgia’s two occupied regions Abkhazia and Tskhinvali (South Ossetia).

Mitov reiterated Bulgaria supported Georgia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and said his country backed Georgia’s quick Euro-Atlantic integration.
