Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani said the government has made a particular plan in order to reduce the number of Georgian asylum seekers in Europe and avoid activation of the visa-free travel suspension mechanism.
He said Georgia’s achievement of visa-free travel to the EU is of utmost significance and should be maintained.
Minister Zalkaliani said the Georgian state reacts to concerns shown by the partner and EU member countries without delay.
Some countries expressed their concern for increased number of asylum seekers [from Georgia]. Our actions are adequate,” he said.
On March 12, Georgian Consuls visited the citizens of Georgia who had to sleep outside in Barcelona, Spain and Amiens, France and advised them to immediately return to the homeland.
