Georgian Foreign Minister Ilia Darchiashvili and his Danish counterpart Lars Løkke Rasmussen on Thursday discussed Georgia’s European integration and the European Commission’s recommendation to the European Council to grant the country the European Union membership candidate status.

At the meeting held as part of Darchiashvili’s visit to Denmark, the officials noted that the recommendation on Georgia’s candidacy was a recognition of the work and efforts made by the Georgian side, with the Georgian FM emphasising the country was waiting for the Council’s final decision on candidate status in December.

Darchiashvili expressed hope that his country would have “the unwavering support” of Denmark, “as before”, in the next stages of the country’s European integration, the Foreign Ministry said.
