TBILISI, October 17 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili said Georgia was ready “to take a look” at any unification if it did not run counter the country’s policy towards European integration.
Speaking at a news conference on Thursday, Ivanishvili said Georgia “is ready to take a look at any unification, which will be useful for the country, including at the Eurasian Economic Union.”
At the same time, the premier said, “Our drive for being part of Europe remains unchanged. No actions will be taken to change our integration into the European Union and NATO.”
“If any unification gives additional benefit to Georgia, we’re ready to discuss such variant,” he said.
“Europe is our strategy and our priority direction. This is the drive of Georgia and our ancestors because we are part of Europe. There is no alternative to this way,” Ivanishvili said.
