TBILISI, December 03, 23:01 /ITAR-TASS/. Georgia’s integration into the European Union is not meant against Russia’s interests, Georgian President Georgy Margvelashvili said in an interview with the Georgian television company Rustavi-2 on Tuesday.
“Georgia’s integration into the European Union should not be taken as a rivalry between Europe and Russia,” he said. “Integration in Europe is the choice of the overwhelming majority of Georgia’s population and its social and political spectrum.” At the same time, he noted that his country was interested in the normalization of relations with Russia and would continue its dialogue with that country to finally “achieve this difficult goal.”
