Ilves affirms support on Georgia visit ({{commentsTotal}})


Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves said on a two-day trip to Georgia that Estonia continues to be a resound supporter of the nation.

Ilves will meet President Giorgi Margvelashvili, Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili, the Parliament Speaker and representatives of political parties.

The main topics are EU integration, the regional and the trans-Atlantic security situation, Estonian-Georgian cooperation in defense, culture, education, IT and development aid.

“Estonia continues to be a solid ally of Georgia and a strong supporter of changes wanted by the Georgian people. These changes, complex reforms, help form a successful and safe future for the whole of Georgia and serve as encouragement for a number of European Union neighbors,” Ilves said.

Ilves said Estonia continues to support the ratification of the Association Agreement with the EU by a number of EU states and hopes Georgians will be able to travel to the EU without visa requirements before the end of the year.

Ilves last met Margvelashvili in April in Tallinn.
