Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili is set to pay a two-day visit to Germany to discuss the country’s visa liberalisation with top German officials.

Kvirikashvili will be in Germany on June 15 and 16.

Kvirikashvili was scheduled to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel and talk about three main topics:

  • Bilateral relations;
  • Georgia’s European integration; and
  • Georgia’s visa liberalisation process.

The two leaders will address media following their face-to-face meeting.

Meanwhile Foreign Ministers of the European Union (EU) member states were scheduled to discuss Georgia's visa-free travel at their June 20 meeting.

Last evening the European Commissioner for Migration, Internal Affairs and Citizenship Issues Dimitris Avramopulous reconfirmed Georgia had fulfilled all the commitments for its visa liberalisation.

"The Commission has been very clear in its recommendations,” Avramopulous said.
"I hope that there will be a progress on this issue in the Council and Parliament soon,” he added.
