The delegation of the European Union Affairs Committee (EUAC) is visiting Georgia to meet with their Georgian colleagues and see the country’s control line with Abkhazia.
The Chairman of the Committee Toomas Vitsut said that Georgia is the Eastern Partnership country that has made the most headway towards the European Union, but that the country still has many impasses to resolve. “The purpose of our visit is to get an overview of the current situation and developmental trends in Georgia,” said Vitsut. “Estonia continues to support Georgia on its path towards the European Union, and is willing to fully share its experiences in carrying out reforms and organising administrative work.”
Vitsut said that it was important in the current security situation that Georgia would continue its efforts to join the NATO, and that Estonia is doing everything in its power to support this.
Today, the EUAC delegation is meeting the First Deputy Chairperson of the Georgian Parliament Tamar Chugoshvili, the Chairperson of the Committee on European Integration Tamar Khulordava, and the Chairperson of the Committee on Foreign Affairs Sophie Katsarava.
Tomorrow, the delegation will visit the administrative control line between Georgia and Abkhazia. The members of the Committee will also meet the Deputy Foreign Minister Vakhtang Makharoblishvili, and the Director of the Information Center on NATO and EU Nino Bolkvadze. In addition, the delegation will meet with the members of the Georgia-Estonia Friendship Group of the Georgian parliament.
The delegation of the European Union Affairs Committee is headed by Toomas Vitsut. It also includes Monika Haukanõmm, Tarmo Kruusimäe, Jaak Madison, and Liisa Oviir.
