TBILISI, March 25. /TASS/. Georgian Prime Minister Irakly Garibashvili has dismissed as unacceptable speculations to the effect the country should give thought to the possibility of joining the Eurasian Economic Union. In his opinion the country’s movement towards the European Union will be the correct choice, as follows from what Garibashvili told a news conference on Thursday.
His comments followed speculations by the leader of the Industry Saves Georgia party (affiliated with the ruling coalition Georgian Dream) Gogi Topadze to the effect the country should consider the possibility of joining the Eurasian Economic Union.
The founding treaty for the EEU was signed by Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus on May 29, 2014. Armenia joined in later.
"I do not share Topadze’s statements. They do not represent the opinion of the coalition, but there is nothing tragic about what he said, either. That’s his personal opinion," Garibashvili said. "The Georgian government has been pushing ahead with an effective policy of integration with European structures and working for the implementation of the association agreement with the EU (signed in July 2014).
