Georgia’s President, Giorgi Margvelashvili, drew attention to the difficulty of dealing with the Russian occupant steps while meeting his Latvian counterpart Raimonds Vejonis in Tbilisi on March 28.

“In the context of European and Euro-Atlantic views, the aggressive policies conducted by our northern neighbour present a real difficulty,” Margvelashvili stated.

“The Latvian President really is a distinguished friend of Georgia, and I personally want to thank him for supporting Georgia so steadily. We have discussed the bilateral and multilateral formats Georgia and Latvia are developing.

“We have also discussed regional cooperation. It is possible to deepen all active Georgia-Latvia formats, and our relationship will last this way. It means deepening cooperation in economic field, education, science and culture. Many interesting projects are able to be conducted,” Margvelashvili stated.

The Georgian President stated it was important that his Latvian counterpart visited Georgia on the day Georgia officially started visa free travel with the European Union.

He stressed Latvia had significantly contributed to Georgia’s Euro-Atlantic integration.

“Latvia has always been a firm supporter of Georgia in the visa liberalization process, and has always supported Georgia at every international forum,” Margvelashvili stated.

As a part of the visit, the presidents signed a joint memorandum related to border security and investment potential.

They opened a large-scale investment project in Kvareli, in eastern Georgia.

The Latvian President already left Georgia.
