TBILISI, December 28. /TASS/. Georgian government will develop co-operation with Ukraine, Georgian Foreign Minister Tamara Beruchashvili told reporters on Sunday.
“In 2015 Georgia and Ukraine will develop partnership dynamically, meetings at the level of heads of ministries of the two countries are planned at the beginning of next year that will prepare Prime Minister Irakly Garibashvili’s visit in Kiev,” the minister said.
On December 26, Garibashvili said in Kiev that “now his visit in Kiev “is being prepared” and the date of a visit “is being negotiated with Ukraine.” “Georgia will give humanitarian and political support to Ukraine, but does not participate in a military operation in Ukraine,” he said. The premier noted that Georgian authorities “stated from the very beginning that they are giving only humanitarian and political backing to Ukraine.”
The Georgian prime minister said repeatedly that “Georgia supports Ukraine’s territorial integrity within internationally recognised borders of the country” and at the same time calls for the need to continue talks between Georgia and Russia.
