The meeting was held between the heads of states within the framework of the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris.
The sides talked about Georgia’s European and Euro-Atlantic integration and the country's progress in this direction.
On November 12 this year, Italy became the 27th of the 28 European Union (EU) member states to ratify the Georgia-EU Association Agreement (AA).
The Georgia-EU Association deal has now been ratified by European Parliament and 27 of 28 EU member states; Belgium is the only remaining EU country needed to fully ratify the deal.
Belgium’s support for the Georgia-EU deal was crucial, as EU Association deals must be ratified by all 28 EU member states before they can be fully implemented.
Georgia’s AA deal was signed by a Georgian representative and the EU in Brussels on June 27, 2014.
