“The Georgian delegation headed by Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili will leave for Brussels for meetings with the PMs of Ukraine and Moldova and high officials of the EU”, said Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani.
Zalkaliani said that during the meeting, the PMs of the Associated Trio (Georgia, Ukraine, and Moldova) will discuss priority directions and expectations the countries have for the planned Eastern Partnership Summit.
The Associated Trio aims to have access to the EU common economic space, as well as to intensify sectoral cooperation to ensure integration into the EU. We [members of the Associated Trio] will do our best to assure EU high officials that our expectations for the Eastern Partnership Summit are adequately assessed and that we see concrete results in the final declaration," Zalkaliani said.
In May, 2021, Georgian, Ukrainian and Moldovan foreign ministers signed an agreement to further strengthen cooperation on common European goals and EU membership.
