European Parliament lawmakers support Georgia’s rapid granting of visa liberalisation
By Messenger Staff
Friday, April 15Georgia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mikheil Janelidze has met with lawmakers of the European Parliament, who stated they fully supported Georgia’s granting ofvisa liberalisation with the EU very soon, supposedly before the beginning of the summer holidays.
The head of the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Elmar Brok, said he waited for Georgia’s gaining the visa liberalisation this summer, as the country met all necessary technical obligations for this.
“Supposedly, before the summer holidays we will make a final decision. I believe there are no obstacles in the way,” Brok said.
The European Parliament and Council of Europe representatives praised Georgia for its democratic reforms and said they supported enhanced relations between Georgia and the European structures.
Georgia needs to receive positive steps both from the EU and NATO, as the country is consistently praised for its good conduct and successful reforms but is yet to be substantially rewarded. .
Georgia is geographically part of Europe and its political future belongs in the EU. It was Georgia’s captivity in the Soviet Union that prevented it from becoming a democratic European country.
Georgia needs to return back to its European family; on this path, motivation is essential.
When one does one’s best and sees no outcomes, one might gradually lose hope.
However, unfortunately Georgia’s NATO and EU future is wholly dependent on the decisions of the bodies themselves.
