TBILISI, November (ITAR-TASS). Georgia will not veer off the road towards ‘Euro-Atlantic integration’, Defense Minister Irakly Alasaniya said Wednesday night.
He said in a live interview with the pro-Western Rustavi-2 channel that Georgian society said definitively some 25 years ago it was opting for a European pathway of development, meaning the thousands-strong rallies in favor of Georgia’s breakaway from the Soviet Union.
“Public quarters in Georgia continue speaking in favor of a course at European integration and there’s no alternative to it,” Alasaniya said, adding that the initialing of an association agreement between Georgia and the European Union, due at the November 28 summit of the so-called ‘Eastern Partnership’ format, was a truly historic event.
The technical initialing of the agreement on Georgia’s association with the EU has been scheduled for November 28 and the next day Georgian Foreign Minister Maya Panjikidze and the EU’s High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy, Catherina Ashton will sign a symbolic act on initialing the association agreement.
