Georgia’s European integration mulled

Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili and President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy discussed the European integration of Georgia.

The two high-ranking officials met at the UN headquarters, the Georgian government press service told Trend.

They stressed the importance of the ratification of the document by the EU countries.

Rompuy emphasized Georgia's success in the European integration, and said that Georgia has enjoyed a number of provisions of the association agreement since September 1.

This gives hope for its further development, he said.

EU signed an Association Agreement with Georgia on June 27, 2014.

The Georgian side ratified its agreement with the EU on July 18. Now the Association Agreement between Georgia and the EU must be ratified by the parliaments of the 28 EU member-states.

The association agreements will help provide Georgia with entry into the EU free trade zone, a path towards economic modernization, higher living standards and a stronger democracy.
