Georgian Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili on Thursday called Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili’s ongoing visit to Israel “very important and timely” and noted it would “strengthen and deepen” already existing fruitful cooperation between the countries, which would be valuable for the Jewish and Georgian people.

Darchiashvili highlighted the “distinguished relations” between Georgia and Israel and stressed this visit would “definitely give a new impetus” to the relationship between the two states, the Government Administration said.

He also noted that during the PM's meeting with his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu earlier today, “a wide range” of cooperation had been discussed, with the directions that should be further developed and reinforced.

The necessity of further enhancing and deepening trade and economic relations between Georgia and Israel was “particularly” emphasised at the meeting, the FM said, adding that in 2024 negotiations on a free trade agreement would begin between Georgia and Israel, which would strengthen cooperation in this regard.
