Georgian Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili on Monday said the visit of Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili to Brussels this week was “of special importance,” pointing to meetings with European Union leaders on the schedule of the Government head. 

The Prime Minister of Georgia will hold meetings with the presidents of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe, and other important, high-ranking officials in the European Commission. The meeting with the Secretary General at the NATO Headquarters will also be a very important part of this visit, bringing an additional impetus for this very important part of our foreign policy,” the top Georgian diplomat said.

On Monday, Garibashvili left for Brussels to hold high-level meetings with the officials in Brussels, with his meetings to involve discussions around the EU membership questionnaire Georgia has submitted.

On May 10, Garibashvili handed over the second completed part of the questionnaire, filled out by the country ahead of schedule, to Carl Hartzell, the Head of the EU Delegation to Georgia.

Based on the questionnaire, the European Commission will prepare an evaluation report on granting the candidate status to the country, with the relevant decision expected by the end of June.
