The close cooperation between Georgia and the Czech Republic was discussed on Tuesday in a meeting between the Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili and the President of the Senate of the Czech Republic Miloš Vystrčil.
The meeting focused on the prospects of further deepening cooperation between the two countries, including in specific sectors, the Government Administration said.
Garibashvili noted the ongoing sessions of the Joint Economic Commission in Tbilisi to determine the future agenda of the economic cooperation between the states, adding the projects funded in Georgia by the Czech Republic were “of special importance” for facilitating Georgia's European integration process.
The Prime Minister also stressed Georgia welcomed the forthcoming Czech Presidency in the Council of the European Union, and expressed hope the country would contribute to the progress of Georgia’s European Union application process through the EU.
Consolidating democracy, strengthening the rule of law and good governance, and protecting human rights remain the “main priorities” in the political agenda of the Georgian Government, the hosting official said at the meeting.
The meeting also dealt with Georgia's progress on its NATO integration path and the forthcoming Madrid Summit of the alliance.
Garibashvili and Vystrčil also discussed the ongoing hostilities in Ukraine, noting Georgia supported the country in both bilateral and multilateral formats in the wake of the Russian invasion.
