TBILISI, November 22, 16:47 /ITAR-TASS/. Georgia will move forward on its road to Europe, President Georgy Margvelashvili told reporters on Friday.
“The road to Europe is the choice of Georgia’s public at large and politicians and we are set to overcome all possible difficulties on the road to European integration,” he said.
At the summit of the European Union’s Eastern Partnership in Vilnius “an association agreement between Georgia and the EU will be initialed” and Georgia will do its utmost to sign it during the year, he said.
“Georgia’s democratic presidential election creates good preconditions for the country to show itself properly in Europe,” Margvelashvili said.
Margvelashvili will lead the Georgian delegation to the summit in Vilnius.
The talks on Georgia’s association with the EU began in July 2010. After the association deal is signed and enters into force, it will replace the effective agreement on partnership and cooperation between Georgia and the EU.
Georgia is expected to sign the association agreement with the EU until September 2014.
