All of the foreign leaders said they supported Georgia’s visa liberalisation process with the EU, which is due to be finalised soon.

They also reconfirmed their support for Georgia’s territorial integrity and Euro-Atlantic aspirations.

The New Silk Road Project was the main topic of discussion between the Georgian Prime Minister and Ukrainian President.

Meanwhile the Estonian President said he was ready to share Estonia’s experience with Georgia as the country sought western integration.

The Administration of the Prime Minister of Georgia said Kvirikashvili spoke about Georgia’s economic potential at each meeting and asked questions regarding his country’s investment environment.
