Nothing threatens the relations of Georgia and the European Union due to the ban on transport amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia said earlier today.

Flights between Georgia, Berlin, Vienna and Amsterdam have been carried out. We will do our best to open borders as soon as possible. Each of our steps are motivated only by the health and security of our citizens. Don’t forget that there are serious explosions of the pandemic in neighboring countries. Georgia has negotiations with each of its partner countries and our relations with the EU have nothing to do with the transport issue”, said Gakharia.

Gakharia also mentioned that the proper behavior of Georgian citizens and, at the same time, the effective control of borders and quarantine zones have led Georgia to the reality that the country now only has new cases of the coronavirus in the single digits.

The Georgian Civil Aviation Agency announced on June 25 that regular international flights will not resume in Georgia until August 1.

The agency calls on citizens not to buy tickets until the exact date of the resumption of international flights is not announced by 'official sources'.
