TBILISI, September 3. /TASS/. The idea of membership of the Eurasian Economic Union disagrees with Georgia’s political development vector, Foreign Minister Georgy Kvirikashvili said in the PolitArt talk show on Georgian television.
"Regrettably, the EAEU is a politically loaded alliance and it utterly disagrees with Georgia’s political vector towards European and Euroatlantic integration," he explained. "In a situation like this considering the possibility of Georgia’s membership of the EAEU would be devoid of any sense. Naturally, it is not under consideration," Kvirikashvili said.
At the same time he pointed out that Georgia maintained the regimen of free trade with all of the EAEU member-states.
"But that’s an entirely different matter than membership of that union," he said.
