Georgia’s application for European Union membership and the ongoing war in Ukraine were discussed between Georgia’s Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili and Germany’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz during a phone call on Tuesday.
The two leaders underlined the close partnership between Georgia and Germany in various fields in the call where the Georgian PM also noted his Government’s appreciation for Germany's role in Georgia’s European and Euro-Atlantic integration path.
Garibashvili said he hoped for Germany's “strong support” in the process of considerations over Georgia's application for EU membership from earlier this month.
