EU Ambassador to Georgia Carl Hartzell welcomed Georgia’s inclusion among 15 countries to which the European Union will reopen its borders tomorrow, on July 1.
Congratulating Georgia Hartzell said this is 'further recognition' of Georgia's 'hard and successful work' in fighting with COVID-19.

Initially, the European Union discussed reopening its borders to 54 countries globally, but the EU Council has officially recommended to lift travel restrictions on 15 of them.
Euronews reported earlier today that an EU diplomatic source has confirmed that the draft list of 15 countries has enough votes to pass.
